Pattern Description: Misses' Unlined Jackets and Dresses in 2 lengths.

Pattern Sizing: 6 - 22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Didn't really need them.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes really, only a preference for bound neckline instead of turning under seam allowance and topstitching.

Fabric Used: ITY knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Bound neckline, FBA using This tutorial which eliminates the bust dart by rotating it out.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes. I hope the maxi dress trend continues. I will be looking at making an unlined jacket so that I can wear this into the fall.

Conclusion: this is a very easy and quick sew.

I can't wait to try this dartless FBA. Your dress turned out great! Perfect selection for that print.
