|Pattern Description: This is a princess seamed slip, half slip and cami designed for knits|
Pattern Sizing: There are no sizes. The sewists uses their bust and hip measurements and a special tape measure to enlarge miniature patterns.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Somewhat. I used a 100% cotton double knit for the full slip and some Zebra print Lycra scraps for the contrast. I made this to be a sundress. The fashion illustration shows a tone on tone contrast band at the bust, and hem and contrast straps.Lutterloh Green Slip Dress My dress did not turn out as straight and slim as expected. I like the dress, and it received rave reviews at Sunday Brunch, but I was going for a more chic look that the slimmer silhouette would provide.
Side View On the Windy Deck
It has been blustery all day, the remnants of a tropical storm is passing by. That is why my hair is almost standing up!
I used a four-thread flat serged finish on the dress. It ruffled the edge a little even though my three test pieces laid flat, so I decided to go with it.

Were the instructions easy to follow?There are no instructions with Lutterloh.The sewist must rely on the line drawing, the pattern markings, the fashion illustration and their own experience. when in doubt, I refer to my sewing books, my PR friends, and other Internet sources.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love the famous Lutterloh darts. I also scratch my head when i see the configuration. But I sew them as I have been trained and they create a beautiful fit. Here is the front Princess Seam:
Princess Seam Darts
With Lutterloh, one must learn to read the pattern lines and symbols.
While the dress front is drafted and paper fitted as on piece, it is actually cut apart, right down the center of the darts and following the straight seam line. the seam allowance is added and then the twp pieces are cut and sewn back together to achieve the slimming princess line.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I left off the contrast band on the hem. and because the skirt turned out to be a little fuller than depicted, I left out the side slits.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES ! Ilove the fit, it is a comfortable dress that can be casual or formal.Before i sew it again, I want to consult with other Lutterloh users to determine why this became a flared silhouette instead of straight.

Conclusion: I have embraced my curves and my inner sex pot! I am sewing for the body I have now, and I am sewing pretty, stylish and well fitting clothing.
