|Pattern Description: |
Misses' day & evening dresses in three lengths, have empire waist, centre front seam, back zipper, bodice & sleeve variations.
I made dress F.
H5 (6-8-10-12-14); P5 (12-14-16-18-20)
I cut size 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. However, I did mine shorter.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were clear, well written and helpful.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the knot on the front neckline.
I like the A-line shape and the dropped shoulders.
I also like how the armholes and the neckline are finished.
I was glad to see that the dress took me less time than I thought to be made.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I usually make a 12, but for a better fit, I sewed between 10 and 12 with shoulders and neckline being 10.
I lowered the front neckline by 2 1/2" because it was a little high. I do not like having the knot too close to my neck.
I shortened the dress to mid-calf (that meant 15" shorter for me).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I might sew it again, shorter and one size smaller.
There were not too many pieces to put together and it was fast to construct.
I would like to suggest to anyone who is planning to do this dress to be careful with the sizing. The pattern seems to run one size larger.
This dress is comfortable to wear. Fit adjustments were easy to make. I like the overall look of the dress which is simple and nice.
