Pattern Description: Pullover, close-fitting, lined dress has draped sides and narrow hem.
Pattern Sizing: 6-22. I made size 16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were simple. 1 page front and back
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Liked the simplicity of the construction. Only 4 pattern pieces and if you add a lining 6 pattern pieces. I did not add a lining
Fabric Used: Polyester Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: This was my first time doing gathers. I did gathers (per the instructions) on the back piece but after reading all the reviews wanted to try the clear elastic method which is what I used on the front piece. Turned out just fine
For sleeve I lengthened 1 inch past the lengthen shorten line on the pattern piece to get a elbow length sleeve
Lengthened hem 1 inch but ended up taking 2 inches off in the end
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes
Conclusion: Very nice dress. I made it to wear to a friends 40th B-day. I got tons of compliments.
