Great Sew-Along for Caprezio

Annette Brook

Such a worthwhile resource Glenda, particularly for sewers with very limited experience. This "old-dog" even picked up a couple of new methods.

I haven't sewn in a while, but was tempted by the design of the top. I am also a plus size and found the top fit me well and suited by body type. Congratulations Glenda on a versatile pattern! The only thing negative I could say is that I lowered neckband to the longest cut out suggested and found that too bare on the neckline, so I will alter that part, the next time I re-make it.

Thank you for this great sew-along! Everything is so clearly explained that there are really no question marks regarding how to proceed. I have learned a lot and gained new confidence in sewing and cannot wait to apply it to another, similar garment. It's wonderful to see how it is possible to use the master pattern and go from there together with the detailed sewing instructions and the best order of putting it together. Thanks again!
