|Pattern Description: I combined 2 views, using the asymmetrical neckline with the long sleeves and full skirt.|
Pattern Sizing:I made a straight size 8. It's true to size, though I might have gone to a 10 in a woven.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, other than the fact that mine wasn't illustrated!
Were the instructions easy to follow? I only followed through the bodice construction, as I changed some things. They were good to that point, and it's an easy dress anyway.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I really like that neckline - it's so fun! I also liked the full skirt and long sleeves. I want some more warm dresses for the remainder of winter, and this is quite warm!
Fabric Used:RPL ponte knit from fabric mart.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I did not line my dress. Instead, I finished the neckline with a bias facing. Because there is a seam at the corner of the neckline, this is a very easy dress to convert to a bias facing - just don't sew that seam all the way (stop 1/4" away) and then follow instructions for a v neckline.
Photo of neckline here.
I also shortened the dress by 4 inches and used a baby hem. There is a whole lot of skirt on this thing, it took ages!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes! I want to make the version with the drape neck. I highly recommend the pattern - I don't know why it took me so long to pick it up, as it's right up my alley!
Conclusion: Great pattern, highly recommended. I had a string of wadders recently, so I'm glad I found a dress I love! More photos are on my blog here.
