Previously I blogged about Alpha-testing of sewing patterns, using the Violette Fields Threads “Matilda” pattern as an example. I’m genuinely happy to update that information today. Matilda has been revised! The raglan armscye has been trued at the neckline (original pattern at left, revised at right):
…..and has been French-curved at the underarm (again, original on the left, revised on the right):
If you have already purchased this pattern you will receive an email with a link to down load the revision. The revised pattern does not include size 12 months, presumably because a new pattern is being released today with infant sizes.
This is a very cute and versatile design. I still suggest adjusting the width of fabric in the skirt, but I can now confidently recommend this pattern.
