    Pattern #115 chemise January 26, 2018
    Reviewer: Suzie Sewer from Anytown, AA United States  
    The instruction booklet is nicely bound but the instructions are terrible.  At the end of the chemise instructions it says "finish seams if you haven't already".  Should I have finished them before?  When is best, as you're sewing or at the end? I don't know.  And the instructions don't tell me.

    I can't figure out how to put the sleeve gusset in. The first diagram (right side up) is for one sleeve and the second diagram (wrong side up) is for the other sleeve.  Very confusing. And I can't tell where the notches match up.

    I'm really glad I didn't try to make a corset! I thought the chemise would be simple but I'm not sure I'll be able to finish it.

    Good luck to anyone trying to use this pattern.
