Pattern Review: Simplicity 1072 + Sweatshirt and velvet

I love this sweatshirt, I don't know why I haven't made this yet but I see so much potential in this pattern.  Don't you love comfort?  This was my Thanksgiving day outfit and it was super comfy.





Pattern Description:  

Misses' Easy to Sew knit pants, skirt and top. Dress up a simple sweatshirt with contrasting fabric in sequins or add jewels or studs. Pair this top with a simple knit skirt or pants for a casual everyday office look.  I made view D


Pattern Sizing:  

16-24  I cut a 22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  

Yes!

Were the instructions easy to follow?  

Yes, very easy instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  

I like the easy construction, and that there are variations.

No dislikes

Fabric Used:

Rayon blend Interlock Knit  and sparkly velvet




Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  

This is my muslin so I sewed it straight out of the package.  I cut the neckline at a size 22 and graded to a 24 from arm to hem since the neckline looks really wide from other reviews.

Would you sew it again? 

Yes, I plan on trying an applique and adjusting the neckline to see if I can get a narrower opening. I'm considering sewing the band one size smaller to see how that looks.  Also, the arms have a ton of ease and I will consider narrowing them to get a closer fit at the wrist.

Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, easy pattern, great for beginner.
