I was thinking about a comment I made in my post about what to wear to my next session. It’s about this Burda,
and I said that it gets more interesting when you look at the technical drawing.
Looks cute. I like the jacket. I’m not into cropped pants myself, but they look comfy, and I like the flat front waistband. Now let’s take a look at the tech drawing:
Hmmmm – that waistband is elasticized. I would not have thought that from the front of the envelope. That may affect your interest in this pattern. I am sure it’s not intentional. It’s just that sometimes the front and back of the envelope don’t match. When in doubt, go with the back of the envelope. Of course, the proof is in the pudding once you open the envelope and actually pull the pattern pieces out. Many stores don’t like you to do that, and it’s not an option when you are shopping on line (shameless plug alert, Butterick/Vogue/McCall is having a huge online pattern sale through Wednesday of this week – NAYY, just sayin’). So do be sure to check out the tech drawing. You may find a hidden gem, or you may find that the pattern isn’t what you expected. But at least you find out!
