A line dress with French darts and bound neckline
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes and no. My neckline doesn't look as wide as the line drawing nor the editorial photo. But, the rest -- yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the French darts, the fit through the waist. It's a simple dress that lets your showcase your material.
A sweater knit from Mood Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a FBA and swayback adjustment. I decided to bind the neckline instead of using a facing. You'll need to reinforce the neckline and armsyce with interfacing to keep the sweater knit stable.
This dress could be made up from ponte, double wool -- any assortment of material. I left off the zipper and it's fine for a knit. But, it you make it up in a woven, you'll need the zipper.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes!! I really love this dress. So simple and chic. I'd like to make it up in a wool doubleknit and have several for basics.
