Pattern Description: Lined, fitted dress with color blocking detail.
Pattern Sizing: I cut the size ten in the top and tapered to the 8 in waist and hips.
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? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Sewing all of those points was difficult. The pattern was labeled as easy but I think it would be very frustrating for an inexperienced seamstress. The lining was the same as the dress so in all 16 points had to be sewn. This was time consuming.
Fabric Used: A print polyester knit for the main dress and a black double knit for the side pieces and yolk with a polyester lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No adjustments
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I love the look of the dress. I will make it in the sleeveless version. It is very professional looking when finished.
I really like the look of this dress. I used an invisible zipper so the pattern wouldn't be interrupted in the back. The front and back look the same! Folks should notice my daughter coming and going in this dress.
