I went to Jo-Anne's yesterday just to kill time and too see what was out there. Well needless to say I walked out with a couple of patterns a book and a gift for a friend....Damn! This happens all the time.
The reason I chose this pattern was because it offer sizes all the way up to 28W...which at the time I thought was AWESOME! Unfortunately I will still have to adjust the pattern because the bust wasn't created for women who are well endowed. So once again I must fight the pattern to form to my body...no problem it's getting easier as my projects progress.
The other thing that attracted me to this pattern was the shirt although I know this particular style has been around for a while now, I thought why not?! I thought it to be the go to shirt. It's sophisticated enough to hold it's own with a few accessories and I love the cuffs and exaggerated collar. It's the kind of shirt that will be universal and fit most occasions. Which is something I need desperately. I also love the fact that it has other options, like the red jumper. I think it's really cute. And the vest will be a good contribution to my wardrobe.
AND!!!! Let's not forget the pants and skirt pattern that also accompany the rest of the items. It's just great to have all these options in one packet...and for ten bucks not bad at all.
