Pattern Description
Blazer with seaming
Which view and size did you make?
104/116 length
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
no - I didn't do the faux pockets or ribbon, and switched the overlap for a boy (this is a "girl" pattern)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It runs super short, even with the adjustment to length, it was still too short by a couple inches. It also runs wide, 104 usually fits my guy perfect and I chose this pattern because of the seaming, and because it was a girls pattern and based on the photos I thought it would be a slimmer blazer, but I had to take it in by an inch on each side to make it fit. The fit was very off. I also had to add a 3rd button, without it, it looked like something was missing and looked odd with the placement of the 2 the pattern called for (there was the perfect amount of space to add the 3rd at the bottom) Sad because its so cute in the magazine!
Would you sew this pattern again?
Would you recommend this pattern to others?
