Helon is complete

Well from the photo's it looks like a success. Indeed Elenya was really pleased with it but, I wasn't! The sizing was terrible. When I had finished it I tried it on and could get it to my hips. Not good concidering it is supposed to be for a child! I then checked the childs pattern against the adults. The number of stitches needed for a 13 year old girls sleeve was the same as those needed for someone with a 40" bust! I dramatically decreased at the neck and then I ended up turning the dress inside out and stitching whilst Elenya was wearing it. I won't be making anything else from this booklet just incase any of the other patterns are as badly written and checked. I guess it is lucky there are loads of other patterns out there that I like!


  1. ... but for all of that, Elenya looks beautiful!

  2. looks lovely to me and I agree with Chris Elenya is a beauty x

    Even if it's not what you had in mind, it really looks beautiful! Good improvisation. :o)

    I know you're not happy with it, but I think it turned out lovely.

  5. Well, it looks like you made a great job of fixing the sizing. She looks very lovely in it!
