1.0 out of 5 stars Bad instructions December 30, 2012

Not a pattern for any skill level unless you know construction. I hoping for a weekend project but got a week project that was too hard to follow and then scraped the project. Use the Laughing Moon Mercantile pattern instead.

I loved this pattern. It is a simple garment, and I thought about just drafting it myself, but I had heard good things about this pattern and wanted to try it out.

It is AWESOME.
a) at the beginning of the pattern instructions are a couple pages detailing the authenticity of the different views (as they relate to extant examples)
b) at the end of the pattern are a few pages full of hand-sewing techniques used for this pattern. I loved this, because I have very little exposure to museum garments, and I have always wondered which stitches were appropriate for historical garments like this, and where they were used on the garment.
c) the pattern was well-drafted, as far as I could tell. I had to make a some dramatic fitting adjustments for my husband, but I expected that as his frame does not match all the measurements called out.

The ONLY thing I was unsure of was the way the pattern required that the interfacing down the centre-front edges of the waiscoat be stitched in such a way as to show tiny stitches on the exterior of the waistcoat. I couldn't find any evidence of that in photographs of extant waistcoats, so I underlined my silk taffeta with muslin, and stitched the interfacing to that. Which may have been less period-correct, but I didn't have stitching showing on the exterior so I was satisfied.

This was a great pattern, I hope to buy more Kannik's Korner patterns in the future, based on my experience with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars seems to run short waisted December 11, 2013

seems to run short in the body - be sure to make a muslin before cutting into your fashion fabric. I needed to add about 12 inches to the front for my husband's vest! Otherwise it was a good pattern and was useful to me.
