I was asked to make a set of school uniforms for Marley and finally managed to go out and get the fabric today and have made the first 'prototype' using the pattern provided to me.
I was very disappointed in the lack of choice of fabric - hoping for a good selection of plaid, tartan etc...only to find there was almost nothing so had to settle for the one below that I have used to make the skirt.
I like the skirt pattern - it fits nicely and works reasonably well with the patterning on the fabric I chose.
The skivvy seems to me not to have allowed enough facing on the back where it does up - so I will amend that. I think I will make the sleeves narrower as well. This probably differs depending on what knit fabric is used. Again I had the choice of...one!
The jacket is perhaps a bit more fiddly than necessary - the sleeves are sewn in two parts, as is the back - wondering if this is really necessary for a jacket of this size - it just adds to the seam bulk. Plus it is very difficult to put the jacket/blazer on over the long sleeve skivvy. Marley just wouldn't hold her sleeves down and they kept bunching up! I'm not sure enough allowance has been made in the front either for the buttons (yet to be sewn on) done up.
I may make up another jacket/blazer with out the extra seams to see how the fit is before I commit to this pattern.
