|Pattern Description: misses'/miss petite dresses|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?pretty much when you take out the pattern in the batik fabric used
Were the instructions easy to follow?Extremely easy to follow....definitely ones that a person just beginning to sew could follow
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I liked the simplicity of the pattern....not one big into frou-frou stuff (I made version A), and this was perfect....only thing I didn't like was that I was afraid I'd have to add length to it (I didn't after measuring)
Fabric Used:funky green toned batik bought from a store that closed a couple of years ago
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:well, see, this was where making a mistake in cutting turned into a bonus....I have gained weight back so I knew I had to size up, but I sized up too much.....by doing that, I eliminated the zipper completely and made this a simple pull-on dress, with the plan being that in the summer, it can be worn over my swim suit, and if I wanted to, I could wear it over a turtleneck and leggings in the fall....
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I probably will sew it again....in a smaller size, of course. Yes, I definitely recommend it to others as, once I had the time, it went together quite quickly and was ready to go with just some quick pressing.
Conclusion: Quick and easy basic dress. Can be made dressier just by changing the fabric or choosing a different sleeve option and adding embellishments. Definitely one that I like while in the "trying to lose weight" phase as it hides imperfections while still having a little bit of class
