To all of you!!! I had to sing Friday night so of course I had to make something up for the festive occasion. Simplicity 3629. I loved working this baby up. You can see my review below and at Pattern Review.
Misses Costume. I made View E
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, most definitely.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I glanced at the directions but did my own thing mostly.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like everything about the pattern, and was able to make it up pretty quickly.
I used a suede type fabric from the costume section from JoAnns for the cape and vest. For the dress, I used a full size bed sheet that I purchased at Walmart for $8.00.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The cape and the vest were suppose to be lined. Since I wasn't sure if I was going to use this costume again, I didn't line the vest or cape. I did reinforce the middle panel of the vest by cutting that piece out twice because I had to install grommets on it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might make the Peter Pan costume next year. Not sure yet.
I love the way this costume came out and it was a big hit.
