Sewing Mis-adventures

I have had it with Simplicity! Why must their patterns be so well, opposite of their name. Unfortunately they are always on sale so I have a few...
My latest Simplicity mishap was with 2702. The neckline is extremely difficult with the facing/placket. perhaps that's why no one has reviewed it on Pattern Review.

Well, I'm having a friend who is an experienced sewer/seamstress help me with that one. I love the finished look... I just need to get there.

In the meantime I'm working on one of my favorite skirt patterns... Kwik Sew 3580. I love the skirt. I wore to a friend's wedding this winter. I'm doing one in a nice light brown, very summery.

I highly recommend this pattern. Well, I'm off. I may be able to finish it tonight.

I've had that problem (that is, Simplicity being anything but)! I've also had some good results from their patterns, once I got over the less-than-stellar explanations. I have little dreams of trying out a bunch of little and independent pattern designers someday. Mmm.

Good luck!

Thanks! Have you tried Colette Patterns? I've been hearing a lot about her lately...

She's here in Portland, but I don't know anyone personally, who has tried using them. I'll let you know if I try it and have any luck.

That's so frustrating when a pattern that's supposed to be simple isn't! Good luck with it!
