I’m late in posting this review, work work it seems the last few weeks
But I wanted to post my final photos of this non-wearable garment for myself that is lol
What I learned in making this garment
- Use the body form, to see how the pieces will fit and where they will fall
I cut out the cape, then I took it to the body from with the pattern pieces, just to see how it would lay.
NOW had I done that in the beginning, I would have realized that I would want to extend the cape in the front to compensate for my chest.
I would have also made the top longer since I had extended the cape in the front.
Once I put the cape cut out and pattern on the body form. I knew this project wasn’t going to go as plan. But I did decided to finish anyway…
The zipper also gave me the blues, and I ended up still installing it upside down… Sighhhhhh
I look forward to the days where I can skip over the instructions for this part, and just employ the techniques I will learn… Because the instructions sometimes make no sense at all….
Im going to say if I attempted to make this pattern again, I will have to extend and adjust the pieces to give me the fit I wanted…. I have no photos of me in it, but lets just say…. It ended up looking like a baby with a bib on instead of flowing like a cape…
Im going to also say, this pattern may run kinda small, I cut a 18 out, and I didn’t like how it fit me, and my daughter who is a good 100 pounds smaller than me, it was just a smidget to big for her..
Well on to new projects…. I will figure out what to do with this… one
