The pattern instructions do not provide enough detail to successfully make this project. Not worth wasting my fabric on this pattern.
The download will not open. After reading comments I think it's just as well. Why doesn't Craftsy pull this so we don't waste our time?
I did not have any problems with opening the pattern
alguna solucin para obtener el patrn gratis facl de descargar a mi computadora?
Thank you ladies for the (head's up) comments before I waste fabric and lots of time. Truly appreciated. Unfortunate, since it's such a cute blouse.
I really wish I would have read these comments instead of the 1 silly 5star review before downloading this pattern and buying fabric. I've made 2 "trial run" shirts now with some extra fabric my mom had instead of the expensive fabric I bought, but I still can't get it to work right! With both attempts I've had to do significant tailoring to keep it wearable and not have my chest or underarm area flapping in the wind. Cute picture of a shirt here, but the directions for how to "make" it are terrible!
Thank goodness I looked at the comments! I thought I was crazy! I can NOT figure out this pattern using the instructions. It really is frustrating. Glad I didn't buy fabric.
OK, for those of us who are usually home decor sewers and not garment sewers, we really do need more detail. The blouse is very cute and I would like to make it, but I don't want a costly material cutout mistake. Plus, it looks like the designer is not answering comments. Maybe this is an attempt to just get pinned/promoted, but the one thing I've learned about free promotion...the quality should be top notch if you are trying to attract buyer to the site. Craftsy really is a better site than this and I am an avid customer. I would hate for a newcomer to get turned off because a giveaway wasn't up to standard.
Okay, I made the top and it does require a bit of technical work. I'll happily help anyone who wants it.
Okay. I don't know about the top part, but I'm a math lover & figured out the lower part... Since you are drawing a quarter circle but cutting it on the fold, you end up with a half circle that needs to equal your full waist. Therefore you get your string length as follows: Measure your underbust/chest. Add about an inch for seam allowance. Divide by 3.14159 and you have your string length/radius. So in my case, 42+1=43 ... 43/3.14159=13.68732.... So I would go with 13.75 for ease of measuring. In all honesty though, for someone of my bustiness this top probably won't work without some serious modifications to the front panels.
I've come back to this pattern several times hoping the corrections would be made. I love the blouse, but the incomplete pattern and incomplete instructions make this impossible for me :(
I just finished looking at the pattern and the back pattern doesn;t have enough detail in order to draw the semi-circle cut outs. I get that the hem might not need to be finished with a knit but it looks like all the edges - neck and sleeves - are also left unfinished. Not sure how well that would wear. Still, it is a cute style and I'd like to try making it.
Tam, some knits don't need hemming at all. However, ti would depends on the fabric you're using. If you are going to turn under the material to hem, you'd want to add that to your pattern.
Hi Meagan, I was unable to get my comment to post on your blog. I just saw this basic pattern and have a question. When you say the string used for drawing the circle should be the circumference of the waist, do you really mean that it is the waist measurement divided by the 3.14, which in your case is 9.55"? Because aren't we supposed to be drawing the pattern for a 1/4 circle?Thanks,Geni
Am I missing something? There is a back pattern piece referred to in the download but not provided. It's a really pretty pattern, but it's not complete.
Help wanted, i can not open my download pattern,Maybe because i live in Belgium ?What program i need ???
I saw it on Page 2 with the other pieces. However, it's not complete with measurements, but I'm guessing 13 inches for the height. However, the neck isn't given. I guess measure you're own after the 10 inches for the shoulder tops. Same with the armholes, although I guess you sew it together at the bottom and whatever is left open is the armholes. I wouldn't think there would be any arm hole cutting, because the front peices don't have them. Step 5 does say to sew together the front and back, however, not how long for... I guess however open you need it.
I agree. I would love to make this top but I'm not sure how to make the pattern for the back part . It looks like the front strap is 13" and straight along the side but the back part has the semi circle cut out for the arm and no dimentions. This feels like it will look strange. Plus there are no dimentions for the back piece except except the 10" either side of the neck. Also what attaches to what. I am a fairly experienced sewer but cannot work this out at all. Can we have some help?
This top is very cute, and I would love to make it but there are missing instructions. After reading the comments it seems as though the pattern pieces are non existent. In a true infinity dress, there are no armholes, the straps that are attached are used to make the sleeves if they are desired. If you google infinity dress tutorial there are tons of tutorials available.
