Fabrics: clerical cotton from Fabrics Galore, I bought this in store and can’t see it on their website.
Notions: Epic [polyfil] thread & elastic.
Pattern description: The Cuff top has a straight fit and kimono sleeves with wide elastic cuffs. Kimono sleeve with top stitch detail on centre and shoulder seams.
Pattern Sizing: X Small, Small, Medium & Large. I made the medium.
Did it look like the photo/line drawing on the pattern once finished?: Yes
What did you like or dislike about the pattern?: Well written pattern, with clear instructions. Simple and straight forward and classed as very easy. It is beautifully packaged and the instructions are in booklet form, complete with drawings and lots of helpful tips.
Did I make any pattern alterations or design changes? yes, used a thinner elastic – 1.5 inch wide as I have a large reel at home.
Would I sew it again or recommend to others? Yes, I will definitely make it again. The top has a real Cos look to it and very easy to wear, would be great in other colours and also think washed linen and silk would work.
Conclusion: Great pattern, simple and would be a brilliant first pattern for some one. I bought it direct from The Assembly Line although The Draper’s Daughter is now stocking them.
