Best of PR Contest...One Last V1224



I love this pattern. You already knew I love this fabric.

So repeat both and be happy! I entered it in Pattern Review's BEST PATTERN Contest for no other reason that I was going to make it again anyway, so why not?

Side view...I love the little blouson that the back makes:




And back view:


The final words of wisdom that I have for this pattern is you MUST use non-roll elastic, especially at the neck. If not, you will get a wonky squareness like this:



Rather than a nice round neck like this:


Okay, I'm putting this pattern to bed and starting on something new. Not quite sure what it will be although I do have a great idea in mind for the NATURAL FIBER Contest. ...Stay tuned!

    1. Thanks! I see you are in Dallas...I can't seem to find many sewing addicts here in Houston that are on PR...do you have that problem up there?
