Pattern Critique: Easy enough for the rating by Vogue. The style is a little "different" but I do really like the high wrap neckline. The instructions confused me some because of the skipping around and a couple of unclear photos. I had to "figure out" the neck line & skirt construction. To me it seems they totally skipped over how to complete the skirt bottom for my view (C) Other than that, I am pleased.
Fabric: Cotton/Spandex print
Modifications: None needed
Results:Cool top. I like it sleeveless too - cool for a little layering. At first glance of this pattern it looks a little early Black Eye Peas, but something told me to make it and I'm glad I did.
Vogue 7003 (Vintage)
Pattern Critique: Super easy. I glanced at the instructions and they seemed too wordy & complicated, so I just winged it since it was a pretty simple style.
Fabric: Cotton/Spandex 2 way stretch
Modifications: Since I am usually a size 14 in the pattern I used 1/4 seam allowances. I also ommited the back zipper since this is super stretchy fabric.
Results: Oh my, my, my, this style is right up my alley! I've loved wearing 70's style since high school so I will get much wear out of this. I plan on "winterizing" this with turtlenecks & boots until spring. I might do another one in white for summer.
