I so enjoyed making this jacket/coat in a lightweight red wool—the pattern was easy to follow and the video was VERY helpful even though I don't speak any French. I did pick up a bit of the language during the process—an extra benefit! Wearing this coat while getting groceries or at the weekly Farmers Market during the Covid winter made me feel ‘dressed up’ in a way none of my other clothes could. I can’t make up my mind which pattern to choose next—lovely patterns!Report abuse
This is a great pattern. So far I made the blouse and I used the ruffled cuffs on another blouse.You will have to take your time with the ruffles, especially if your pattern has a print but it’s well worth the effort. And it is nice to slow down and really do the best job you can. And learn a few new skills!
The instruction in English were easy to follow. There is also a video (in french but you can see really well what the lady is doing). All and all I highly recommend this pattern!
Magic in a beautiful little packet
The package arrives in the mail, and the presentation box is not only beautiful but functional with a place to record any notes. The instructions are very clear, with pictures as an aid. I made my first blouse with the keyhole neckline, full back variant in a gorgeous fabric from Atelier Brunette (Granito night, and with thanks to Maai Designs in Australia for importing such gorgeous fabrics for us 'down under'.) I am already searching for more fabric to make another variant of this blouse. With thanks to the team at Atelier Scammit!Report abuse
Stunning and A Great Way To Master Your Gathering Stitch
This lady is the queen of gathering stitches. This pattern has it on 7 seams and now I feel like a badass with gathering stitch. Her teaching in the video has improved my pinning techniques and I am so stoked at how professional this top looks. Even though the videos are all in French, if you know basic sewing and have done a few pants and zips this won't challenge you at all. It took me nearly 5hours but that was due to the language difference and I missed a few directions on "do this to the other side as well" so I had to fix those mid sew. But other than that this design teaches you so much about good sewing techniques. I am now onto making a few more for my daughter and a girlfriend. Buying this top = $400 in the quality of fabric I bought, making it = $30.
Am looking forward to more designs that will suit my figure that I can sew of yours. Thank you so much for this beautiful pattern, j'adore!
I bought the paper pattern and had it delivered all the way to Australia, thats how much I wanted this blouse!!! The instructions in the booklet look great and love the photos, as I don't read french fluently I'm still confident in the construction of this blouse. I'm still looking for the right fabric but will have it made when the Australian summer comes around.Report abuse
