    5 out of 5 Wonderfully chic secret pyjamas

    I’m absolutely in love with this book and all the patterns I tried, but Camille jumpsuit is just perfection. The instructions are great as always with see over it patterns, the fit is spot on. Following the measurements from the table I graded between sizes (10 on top and 8 on the bottom). This worked out beautifully.

    I decided to use medium/heavy weight scuba fabric and it was a little bit chunky in places, namely around the waist, but it did work in the end (even if it broke my walking foot… totally my fault for choosing too thick fabric).

    I’m definitely going to make more of those!

    5 out of 5 Camille jumpsuit

    MissHarrietVane

    This is my first jumpsuit and I love it! I like the sleek silhouette and the neckline of this pattern. No unnecessary amount of fabric gathered around the waist 😉
    I’m 157 cm and made size 12. The fabric is a printed viscose.
    Since the patterns from Sew Over It basically has fitted me perfectly previously I opted for size 12 with no changes (except for 10 cm shorter leg length).
    Instructions were basically easy to follow, but the photos were a bit small and it would have been easier to see details if the fabric for the test sewing in the sewing instructions hadn’t been so dark.
    All in all I’m very happy with my new jumpsuit and I will probably make it again. Next time I will shorten the length of the bodice 2cm, reduce the shoulder width 1 cm and make a Full Biceps Adjustment.

    5 out of 5 The Anna coat is fantastic 🙌

    theminimalapproach

    I made all 5 patterns, my 2 favorites are the Anna Coat and the Dana Dress. I lined the coat to get a more professional finish and I am very pleased by how it turned out. I made the Camille Jumpsuit a bit too small so I don’t wear it, but it’s a great pattern and would like to do it again. The Kate shirt was a little bit too cropped for my taste but I plan on making the dress version. I like to wear the edie which is a fairly simple but also elegant dress. I recommend this ebook. Check out my videos for my full review.

    5 out of 5 Edie Dress

    RachelLovesFabric

    I made this dress in just a couple of hours; as the eBook says, it’s definitely the quickest/easiest make from the collection. I did have some trouble with the neckline because I could not find the recommended vilene interfacing tape required in the pattern locally (or in Canada at all). I tried to use the best substitute I could find in my local shop, a fusible seam binding, but this did NOT work as a good substitute. It was much too stiff and so to have it lay flat I had to turn over the neckline twice, and it doesn’t lay as nicely at the shoulders as it should. This is not an issue because of the pattern, but more of a note that you really must get the specific interfacing tape recommended (I just found some on Etsy so will be able to make this pattern again!)

    The pattern instructions are wonderful and clear, and the fit is great.

    This is the first make from this eBook, but I have plans for every pattern in the collection because it is perfection! It includes so many items and options that it really is a complete capsule for either a work wardrobe, or a casual weekend wardrobe. So happy with it, highly recommend!

    4 out of 5 Camille Jumpsuit and Anna Coat - Work to Weekend E-Book

    norseotter

    I really love the curated look of the Work to Weekend e-book and think the pattern designs are very elegant. Overall I’m happy with the purchase and plan to make all the patterns – I’ve already made the Camille Jumpsuit and Anna Coat and you can read my full reviews here:

    Anna Coat: https://norseotter.blogspot.com/2019/03/a-bright-basic-sew-over-it-anna-coat.html
    Camille Jumpsuit: https://norseotter.blogspot.com/2019/03/dangerous-curves-sew-over-it-camille.html

    I do have a couple of instruction PDF design gripes however; the pattern descriptions are printed in thin white text on patterned backgrounds – the poor contrast is difficult to see. I’d also mention that some of the sewing steps aren’t shown as clearly as they could be in photos, e.g. showing white lines of stitching on pale fabric when it’s really important to know where to stop and start your stitching. Some of the visual cues in the photography are not clear enough for someone who is doing that step for the first time . I think using contrast stitching or adding in another visual cue would be a huge improvement – if the photos aren’t clarifying the steps for visual learners, why use photos at all?

    5 out of 5 Kate Shirt

    FoodieNelly

    I love so many patterns in this eBook. The first I tried was the Kate Shirt, but lengthened to be closer to the style I’d wear more.
    Despite the concealed button placket making me think this would be complicated, I found the instructions very easy to follow and had no issues with the button placket at all.
    I did toile this before I made it and found I needed to lower the bust darts (I think by an inch) and also reduced the sleeve head so was not so puffy (based on guidance on Instagram by @theyilingcrafts ) but other than that, pretty standard.
    After wearing this a couple of times though, I think I’ll add some fish-eye darts (if that’s their name!) to make it more fitted as that might suit me more.
    The fabric was some sort of crepe, I think, that doesn’t crease much but pressed well.

    5 out of 5 Alex shirtdress

    karinkay

    I made my first Alex shirtdress from a rather thick, cotton-like fabric with little dots on it. Even though the description said I needed 3 meters, I was fine with 2 meters of fabric.

    Before I started, I had looked at several other versions of the Alex shirtdress, wondering if it would be something for me. I thought most of the versions looked rather wide and almost pyjama-like, so I decided to use a smaller size than what was recommended. After the first fitting, I also took in the sides with about a centimeter because it was still very large on me.

    These are the other modifications I made:

    – I didn’t add the pockets on the chest as I (and everyone I asked for advice) liked it better without.
    – I removed about 10 cm from the hem (I am 1.63m so rather short). I used my blind hem foot for the first time! I also removed the high-low bit and the curve as I like my hems straight.
    – I made the sleeve tabs much smaller as they’re rather large and prominent, and I also changed their location. The sleeves should be ending at your lower arm, for me they covered my wrists. So I changed the location so that the rolled up sleeve would sit just above my elbow.
    – Only the first few buttons have real buttonholes, because I can just pull it on over my head. The others are just the buttons sewn on.
    – I added belt-loops as I knew I would always wear it with a belt.

    This was pretty easy to sew, especially because of the woven fabric. I really liked the easy construction of the collar. The construction of the yoke was a little bit complicated, but Lisa’s video tutorial explained it very clearly. This is one of my favorite outfits now!

    More photos and info about the construction (in Dutch) can be found on my blog about Alex: https://www.karinkay.nl/alex-shirt-dress/
