DG Pattern Blog Tour

Scroll down for english, please! 

Hoje faço parte de um tour, patrocinado pelos moldes DG Patterns, no site encontram uma grande variedade de moldes, modernos e com um design apelativo. Para este tour escolhi dois moldes, mas como podem ver, só tenho um a apresentar. Digamos que poderia ter corrido melhor! Acabei por perder demasiado tempo a fazer uma peça que se previa ser bastante rápida e pequenos detalhes desmotivaram-me a continuar com a segunda peça, que era aquela que eu mais queria ter feito. 

I am part of a pattern tour today, which is sponsored by DG Patterns, you can find a bunch of modern and appealing patterns on their site. For the tour I picked two, but as you can see for yourselves, I only have one of them to blog about. Let's say things could have been better! I ended up wasting too much time on a piece that should have been nothing but a quick sew, but a lot of small details I just couldn't ignore, unmotivated me to go on with the second one, which was also the one I was previously more excited about to start. 

O molde que efetivamente fiz foi o vestido Loose Fit Raglan. Alterei a altura, tirando uns bons centimetros, porque afinal sou baixinha e não queria que o vestido me ficasse abaixo dos joelhos. Fiquei satisfeita com a altura com que acabou. O tecido que escolhi é em malha, e por mais maravilhoso e lindo que o ache, creio ter pouca elasticidade para a peça em si. Fica um pouco apertado, mas é como vos digo, creio ser mesmo pelo tecido. 

The pattern I got to finish was the Loose Fit Raglan Dress. I altered the height, taking a few centimeters off, because I am short after all and I didn't want my dress sitting lower than my knees. I was happy with the height I got. The fabric I picked is a knit but as beautiful and wonderful as I think it is, it's not as stretchy as it should. It got too tight, but as I say to you, I really think this is due to the fabric. 

Ao alterar a altura não tive em consideração o posicionamento dos bolsos, e acabaram um pouco acima do (para mim) desejado, porém estão ali num limite que ainda tolero, mas é algo ao que devo prestar atenção se por acaso voltar a costurar este molde. 

When altering the height, I didn't take into consideration the pockets positioning and I think they are a bit too high (for me), though they're just there in the acceptable limit, so it really is something I should pay attention to if I get to sew this pattern again. 

Para além de ter mexido na altura do vestido em si, também encurtei em cerca de 2,5 cm e  quando acabei o vestido e o experimentei arrependi-me, é que normalmente as mangas de todos os moldes costumam ficar-me demasiado longas, e eu achando que o mesmo aconteceria aqui, fui logo encurtando as ditas. Nas fotos nota-se bem a diferença entre as mangas do vestido e da blusa que sobrepus para o look. Gosto de ver assim. 

Besides changing the heigth of the dress, I also took about 1 inch off the sleeves, and I regreted it after finishing and trying the dress on. Usually I get too long sleeves in all patterns, so believing this would happen again I just went ahead and cut the extra inch off, only it wasn't necessary this time. In the photos you can see the difference in lenght from the dress sleeves and the shirt I layered with it. I like it though. 

O corte do vestido é largo na parte de cima e justinho na parte inferior, o que para mim não é muito favorecedor, já que depois dos filhos fiquei com uma barriguinha nada simpática que geralmente até consigo disfarçar, mas que vi demasiado evidenciada pelo vestido. No entanto gostei dele e não vai ser isso que me vai impedir de o vestir. 

The fit of the dress is loose on top and tight on the bottom, which isn't too flattering on my body, once I had kids I got an annoying belly I usually can hide well, but this design brings it out as crazy. Even though, you can be sure I will be wearing it again, that's just a detail and because I actually like the dress, it won't stop me. 

E afinal, o que correu menos bem? Muita coisa, deparei-me com uma série de erros no molde, faltavam indicações, páginas a imprimir incorretamente, erros ortográficos... tive o cuidado de olhar para o molde com olhos clínicos e reportar tudo o que encontrei à designer, para que possa melhorar o seu produto e espero que tenha tido todas essas notas em consideração. Em relação à peça em si, não me posso queixar, mas os pequenos detalhes também contam muito na nossa escolha e não quis deixar de vos alertar para este ponto caso adquiram algum dos moldes. O segundo molde que recebi e que ainda está por terminar foi o Santiago Jacket, e também neste encontrei vários erros, mas não desisti de o terminar, apenas o farei mais tarde, e terei todo o gosto em partilhar o resultado convosco. 

So, what went less well? A lot, I found a lot of mistakes, indications/marks were missing, typos, printing issues... I carefully took notes from everything I found, sent it all to the designer so she can improve it and hopefully she will take it all into consideration. As for the pattern piece itself, I have nothing to say, still all the other details are important when choosing a pattern and I didn't want to let it pass here neither, in case you buy any of the patterns. The second pattern I got and is still waiting to be done, is the Santiago Jacket, and I also found a few issues, but I did not give up on it completly, I just will finish later, and then I'll be happy to share my thoughts with you all.
