I bought this pattern at FULL price and thought it was just the cutest thing ever!!!
|But, having done that, I don't know. The proportions remain off. Furthermore, the difficulty many had with the burrito method the pattern espouses when attaching the inner back yoke was something I experienced myself. I ended up doing it my way on this second one, it is clean and neat and worked far better, for me anyway. Ditto for the way you are to finish the cute little neckline at the facing for the buttons. I did it differently on both, neither quite as advised by the pattern. Specifically, the "circle" one is advised to clip to... really does not seem to be appropriately placed. |
If you look closely at this review, sew2pro, you'll see that despite this sewist's very cute result, her shoulders are struggling in the space allowed as well!!
Apparently, Colette is designed for chicas with narrower shoulders and bigger tah tah's than I possess. Luckily, Rosie's curves can work with this last version. Perhaps with all the working knowledge I now posses I'll give this pattern one more go....but....I'm not sure!!!
