First, let me say that I rarely use traditional patterns because I have a hard time understanding them but I do have a basic knowledge of how to read a pattern and feel I have an even better ability to visually figure things out. Give me lots of pictures please!
Ok, for the book itself...it is beautiful! I love the pictures and there are examples of every pattern put together. I was super excited to get started. I chose the blouse on the cover to start with. It is one of my favorite styles.
I pulled out one of the two pattern sheets. Yes, one of two sheets for all eight patterns! The patterns are stacked one on top of the other for four different sizes. (be prepared to be challenged). The pattern that I chose had four pieces to it. It took me well over 30 minutes to figure out what I was looking at and to get the pattern traced onto my butcher paper.
Here is that little stripe that is not quite straight. When putting this whole project together I starched my fabric since I used linen fabric and it has a tendancy to move around abit. When I finished the whole thing it did look a little stiff and boxie so I quick threw it in the wash to see how it would look when it relaxed.
be able to wear the sweater I've been working on and didn't want the material wadding up.
There you have it my review on this pattern and the book its self
I'm looking forward to the next project from this book!
