|Soon after I bought this pattern, the first review came out. That talked about all the disappointment this pattern caused. Plunging neckline and too much excess fabric by the tie. At the end she created a very nice dress but was put off by all the changes to get to that result. Lots of readers decided not to buy the pattern or just try the one with no gathers. |
But by that time I found the perfect fabric for it and had the need to try it.
But I learnt from the review. I chose a very thin fabric, probably pretty similar to the one on the pattern photo and cut one size smaller than usual. The result is a perfect fit, super dress! I love the color and I love that no alteration was needed.
I only lengthened the upper part a bit so the tie sits on my waist. (The only thing I forgot to do is to lower the position of the tie on the left end of the right front, so I had to fix it later).
Pattern Description: Close-fitting, pullover, mock wrap dress with gathered right front
Pattern Sizing: 6-14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very much so!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love the gathering and the fit
Fabric Used: Purple rayon spandex
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Lengthened the upper part by 1.5 inches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes
Conclusion: Love the dress. I expected it to come out nice but it is beyond my expectations! The fit is perfect. I really didn't make any changes to it at all! Love the fabric I used. It is so light and soft, hugging me like a dream!
