Great Minds Think Alike

One of the cool things I’ve appreciated in the 2 short years of sewing is that you would rarely find 2 sewist with the exact same pattern AND fabric.  Well, I almost proved myself wrong!  Thanks to the Pattern Review website, I remembered that Victoria B also used this fabric with one of the patterns under consideration (Simplicity 2406)!  http://tenthousandsewinghours.blogspot.com/2011/11/simplicity-2406-my-salsa-birthday-party.html

Now, it would have been perfectly fine to use the same pattern.  After all, we live some 800 miles away from each other!  She’s in GA and I live in MI but I couldn’t continue to espouse uniqueness as a quality of sewing knowing that someone, somewhere-namely Georgia -could potentially have on the same outfit, on the same day!  I guess a better way to look at it is –Great minds think alike!  Nonetheless, I decided to use Simplicity 2187 instead and here’s my review…

Pattern Description: </b>

Misses dress, jumpsuit and tunic

<b>Pattern Sizing:</b>

14 – 22

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

Yes

<b>Were the instructions easy to follow?</b>

Extremely easy.

<b>What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?</b>

I like the super easy pocket construction.  No dislikes

<b>Fabric Used:</b>

Wasn’t sure until I remembered that Victoria B used the same fabric for Simplicity 2406.  She noted it was a woven polyester so that’s good enough for me!

<b>Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:</b>

none

<b>Would you sew it again?   There’s too many other patterns on my list. Would you recommend it to others?</b>  I would definitely recommend it.    The instructions were perfect.  Great for beginners.

<b>Conclusion: </b>

This is a great summer wardrobe extender.  I love the fabric in this pattern and Victoria B’s also.
