1573Re: [ICG-D] New Simplicity Patterns
- Jun 29, 2001Hey everybody--
Way back on 6/1, Susan Stringer posted a message about new patterns from
Simplicity (then Bruno (armyofdorkness, good one!) and Lisa and Janice,
I used the "pants" pattern (slops! they're slops!) for the bottom half of
a suit I made to go to a friend's fantasy Renaissance wedding, and it
turned out great. I think it's a user-friendly pattern (the instructions
are less so, but what the hey), although I was slightly taken aback at
the realizatiion of how much fabric was involved.
After building a Fantasy Fashions doublet for my top half, I read the
Simplicity doublet instructions. While the directions are actually pretty
good, this is not an attractive doublet and would require moderate to
major tweaking. IMO, it is one step up from bad Halloween costuming.
I think it's worth buying for the earlier Tudor doublet, but not for the
"It's kind of neat to do the impossible."
