Pattern Sizing: 8 - 16 I made a 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy and well written.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the slim silhouette of the dress, the 1-piece bodice as opposed to an upper and lower bodice attached at the waist, and the raglan sleeves
Fabric Used: lycra/rayon jersey from Mood Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I inadvertently omitted the zipper later discovering it's not necessary.
2. I added an underlining to the bodice sections using a very lightweight tricot knit.
Otherwise I sewed as directed
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would love to sew this again and will tweak the upper bodice area to get the perfect fit I'm always seeking.
Conclusion: This is an easy and classic pattern as well as my first See & Sew! The faux wrap style is practical and easy to wear.
