I know -- I asked for pattern advice regarding the teal knit nearly 2 months ago. I just finished it this afternoon. Other stuff to sew/quilt/knit keeps coming up!
The pattern went together beautifully, and quickly (1.5 hours sewing time, including pressing, changing serger from 4 to cover/chain to 4 thread operation).
I followed the instructions pretty closely, with the following exceptions:
1) I raised the point at which the front drapes starts at top 3 inches, fearing it would be too low cut.
2) Instead of clean-finishing the front edges and hems, then topstitiching them, I used a cove/chain stitch on the serger to accomplish it in one step.
3) Instead of gathering the front drape to fit the side panel, I adjusted the differential feed on the serger to do that while connecting the seams.
Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE my BabyLock???
I was warned that Christine Johnson patterns run big, but failed to heed the warning. Now I shall be taking up the shoulder seams, and, may be putting a dart or two in the back.
Still: it's done!
Do I look as sassy in this as I think I do?
