  • Finally got around to finishing this project! Yay! Here are a few of my pros and cons from this pattern in particular: PRO: I do love Sprout Patterns for having the fabric already printed up in the shape and size of the pattern I need! Saving some time for sure. CON: I dislike having to print out paper pieces of patterns, which for this pattern, you generally still have to print out some of them to get placement dots for things like buttons and pleats, so that's slightly annoying. I kinda wish the dots were printed onto the shirts as well, but I do realize not everyone wants to put the pockets in the same place, or the fit may have to be tweaked for certain body types, so having them printed could cause other issues. PRO: I did like the tips in the margins of the pattern, for links to things like alternate pocket types (should I, in the future, like to make this out of other materials) or how to flat fell the seams. CON: The seam allowances did tend to jump around a bit to differing sizes, and it wasn't always re-listed in the next section or part of the pattern clearly, which means I had to re-read the instructions a few times to make sure I was getting it right. As this is a more complex sew than some of the dresses from Sprout, it does stand to reason that you would need to reference some of the paper pieces of the pattern for positions of the key pieces. I also searched the world wide web for helpful tutorials such as the Negroni Sew Along by Peter Lappin of Male Pattern Boldness! Or see my full review here: http://bit.ly/negroni-rocketmanshirt
