Nice pattern, wrong fabric

A review of True Bias Roscoe Blouse and Dress

Reviewed by So I Sew and Sow on 27th November, 2021

I think sometimes a pattern and a fabric don’t mix and this was the case with my Roscoe blouse. Despite seeing so many lovely drapey viscose versions, I made it from a broderie anglaise double gauze. This meant the final version didn’t have the drape I was looking for and the neckline, ties and cuffs were tough to sew as I effectively had 5 layers of fabric plus embroidery in places which wasn’t easy when working with quite narrow pieces of fabric.

Apart from my poor fabric choice though, it was a good pattern to sew and the instructions were easy to follow. My full review is here:
