Walthamstow market, and although I thought at first it was a little stiff for a casual fitting item, after a few wears out and a wash I think it works rather well.
Playsuit Pattern. Beginner/Intermediate difficulty
Size 4-16 US, 6-18 UK
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Reasonably, as there were no particularly difficult techniques needed. However I think for a beginner pattern it needed more guidance on which sides should be together when and just generally more intricate details. It assumes a reasonable amount of knowledge already, I only knew how to do a crotch seam from my pyjamas.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the end product, although I think there is quite a lot of room in the bodice. I like the ease of the poppers, but they refuse to lie flat. I think there could have been more diagrams in the instructions, and the two pocket lining pieces were different shapes but the same in one of the diagrams.
Navy polka dot cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I changed the shape of the pocket lining number 1 piece to match the number 2 piece as I couldn't understand why they were different, as they were the same in the diagram.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I may sew it again, although I'm not sure how many playsuits one person needs! I would recommend it to others.
It's a really comfortable, cute item of clothing great for summer days and cycling, although perhaps not the most flattering due to the extra space in the bodice.
And here it is in action on a Boris bike!
