First, the good. In my opinion. Roll your cursor over images to get pattern numbers if you are interested.
I like both skirt options. And both sleeve options. I think this pattern will be in my collection at some point.
The plaid matching in the photo makes me dizzy. I picture trying to do this and never completing another project again because it is beyond my ability. But if I imagine completing it in something other than plaid it seems like something that would fit well into my wardrobe. There are also trousers in the pattern. Hmm…
Love these sleeves. Definitely prefer the 3/4 length. Wouldn’t this be nice in black?
Wow. This fabric is so NOT me. But the v-neck and ruffle detail certainly are. Look at the technical drawings to get a better idea.
I love how this is described as “above mid-knee”. I guess they don’t have an “almost up to the hoo-haw” description. I know it isn’t really that short but I don’t wear skirts too far above the knee; however, I love the low back and the gathering below the bust, front and back. And the back peplum is gorgeous. The model kinda knows she looks hot, too.
And now the not so good. In my opinion.
Okay, I’m dating myself with the Logan’s Run movie reference but really, is this not sci-fi meets patchwork? I don’t know whether to spread it on the bed or set my phaser to stun.
“Hi, Vogue. I’m looking for a top that will make me look bigger than I am. Yeah and if when I wear it no one could tell if I was a man or woman, that would be great…Oh, I could just wear my husbands stretched-out Celtics sweatshirt, you’re right!”
