TL; DR – Gathering self jersey can be a real pain.
I am a Styla Pattern tester, and in my quest to sew through some of my knit fabrics, I jumped at the chance to sew up a Parker dress.
I lengthened the bodice because I look…weird when the line hits me just below my bust, and I chose this fabric because it isn’t aligned so I don’t have it aligned. It’s secret pajamas, just because the knit is so soft.
The only critique I would have, which is more of a me-problem, is that there is so much gathering. But that’s the pattern, so, again, a me-problem.
