Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Uh, kinda
Were the instructions easy to follow? They were very easy, as all ks patterns are!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No real dislikes, the pattern was otherwise simple, no sideseams, zipper instructions was somewhat questionable tho, lol.
Fabric Used: Stretch patent leather
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Uh, where do I start! Okay, first off this is a great pattern if using the suggested fabric. Since hubby and I, were doing a Matrix theme, I wanted to use the patent. I adjusted the pattern as needed, 2" on leg length, 1" on arm length, and for the torso I added 2 more inches since i knew the fabric didn't stretch that way, lol. Lawd I should've made a large!!! Unfortunately, the stretch in this fabric was not nearly enough, I had to add a 1.5" panel on each side of the zip, so that it could close properly! I also decided to make my zipper exposed and added in vertical darts to give it more shaping.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yep, but not this version, but I do plan to make the other versions for my yoga classes...in the appropriate fabric tho, lol.
Conclusion After the alterations, it really turned out great, hubby and I were a hit @ the costume party so it was fine. I'll be reviewing his costume "simplicity 5386" soon as I can locate the memory card!
Which would you choose, ...the red pill or blue? lol
All in all, I did have quite a few challenges, getting thru this, but I learned a lot about myself in the 2 days I had to put it together! We had mad fun tho, I'm unplugging til next year, get-it!
