|Pattern Description: |
Knit knee-length dress with front surplice (mock wrap) neckline, short kimono sleeves and an easily customizable midriff section.
Multi-sized - fit to your own measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I had problems with matching the top bodice to the middle, but this may have been a mistake on my part. (I made the mistake of discarding the cut-off pattern pieces and couldn't go back to check.)
Polyester Jersey. I was trying out the pattern and this was the only jersey I could find that I liked. After partly making it up, I decided that I would not go ahead with it as I disliked the color on me. Consequently the sides are only pinned and the hem hasn't been taken up.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I was a bit disappointed with the fit/gathers at the bust. I think the gathering needed to be fuller. (However this could have been caused by the mistake I mentioned above.) If I made this again I would use a dark color or an all-over pattern.
Excellent pattern for cutting to your exact size. Would recommend this to beginning sewers.
