Time to show you a Figgy’s pattern I’ve sewn last week. I’m really in love with the patterns on this cute little website. So I bought the Ayashe blouse and the Sunki dress patterns…. After buying the patterns I was sooo excited to make the blouse first. I found the perfect fabric at the Handmade in Belgium fair last week. It’s a fabric from Koning Uil but I don’t see a brand mentioned… To be honest: it a fabulous fabric: it’s a very light weighted cotton so that the reason I decided to still make this blouse with long sleeves for this summer.
When I was sewing the blouse I got a little disappointed. The patterns is really nice, but the collar didn’t seem to fit 100% so I adjusted the model a little bit. And the neck opening is too small. Not nice to see this at the end when you’re about to let the children try the blouse on…
And the instructions are not the best I’ve ever used. Especially the part about adding the collar is not clear at all. I just used my own experience to finish the blouse, but from time to time, I just want to follow instructions without too much thinking.
Sorry to be so negative, but I also thought the skirt pattern would be included. This is the case on the paper version, but not in my e-pattern. So another disappointment. A part of the skirt pattern is still in my PDF file and the skirt is also displayed on the preview on the website. But at the end I didn’t realised it was just for the paper pattern, after purchasing my digital version. I really hope the Sunki dress will be a bigger success! Feel free to share your experience, if you made this blouse before!
