Faux-soni

KS3378 and S4503
Pattern Description: The Misses' close-fitting pullover tops have twist fronts and deep V-neckline finished with a narrow hem. View A has full-length sleeves. View B has three-quarter length sleeves and is cropped. View C has short sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: I sewed the small

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Again, it's the "chicness" of it.
Fabric Used: A "Fauxsoni" knit I purchased at Hancocks ages ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. The weight of the fabric causes the twist to sit higher than when I used an ITY. The skirt is S4503 ( I think it's OOP). I eliminated the centre front seam, the zip and the darts and inserted an elastic waist. I turned the pieces at a 45 degree angle to get the chevron. If you look closely, the side seams DON'T exactly match. LOL. But you'd have to look really close. I was more concerned with making sure the front and the back pieces matched.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Maybe. This is the fourth one I've made.
Conclusion: When I purchased this fabric, I thought "chevron". I just envsioned a cute outfit from the 70's. I could have made a dress, but I wanted pieces that would work with other things in my wardrobe
