Celebrating African-American History Month -NL6147
This is a review of the second outfit made for a friend.
Pattern Description: Misses' Coordinates: unlined jacket, pull over top, elastic waist pants and skirt.
Pattern Sizing: 10 - 22. I used size 20. Views E and C
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much. I made a slight change to the back of the skirt (making a vent instead of a slit). Finished vent.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. Nothing confusing.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Ms. Bonnie requested some simple skirts that could be easily put together. This pattern fits the bill.
Fabric Used: Cotton from WalMart
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: The only change was making the vent in the back of the skirt.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. I originally bought this pattern for the top. So I will try it for myself.
Jacket on Table
Headwrap made from leftover fabric, cut 8"X50"
Conclusion: This is an easy pattern that I would recommend to beginners. You can sew up some easy coordinates in no time at all.
