Lutterloh Supplement 280 #29
Scoop neck knit top with band of different color a neck, sleeve and hem.
Lutterloh is based on your bust and hip measurement. Your pattern is drafted out using these two measurements. So ideally if your bust and hip are 50cm to 140cm the system should work for you.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes kind of
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Lutterloh has no instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Likes: My children have named this the wonder bread shirt. The slightly puffy sleeve was a nice surprise.
Dislikes: This shirt is very loose fitting which is not apparent in the picture. Also I would have to say the neckline is more boat shaped since it is very open. This causing me to wonder if the shoulders were drafted different in this one.
A whimsical dotted knit from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts bought a year ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
½ inch narrow should adjustment. But it was not enough. The neck is very open on this one almost a boat neck. Think it may have been drafted for someone with broader shoulders because on me it became a drop sleeve garment. To give you an idea, the neck band seam is where my shoulder ends. Also I left off the band at hem because the top was already quiet long.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Not so sure I will sew this again. I would have to do several alterations to make this work the way I want it. It might be the perfect top for someone else. The pieces fit well together and it sewed up nicely.
Although I am slightly disappointed with my wonderfully whimsical wonder bread shirt I have to admit the loose fit has worked nicely on these hot days of summer.
