Short/pant suit and Jumper with large pockets Vintage 70s Which view and size did you make?
Short Suit sz 6 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes If not, why?
- Were the instructions easy to follow?
No If not, why?
They had you performing certain tasks in a strange order (ie, sew up sides before putting in zipper) What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Even though my daughter is the EXACT size of the pattern, it doesn't fit well. I had to take off 3/4 in of *each* side seam and one shoulder strap falls off all the time. Fabric used
Cotton Woven-Amelia by Timeless Treasure Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
Take in the chest and sides to fit properly Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
No Any additional comments
I'd make this again because my daughter really likes it. I omitted the zipper because she asked me to. The style is cute but Butterick has always been pretty standard for me as a "no go". I don't like their patterns and, often times, the pieces don't match up right which happens here with the facing.
