|Pattern Description: |
From the pattern envelope: "Misses' One-Piece Dress: Semi-fitted A-lined dress has front yoke gathered to shaped inset band. Short sleeves and jewel neckline."
The pattern is a size 14, bust 36, hip 38.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I would say so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, the pattern and illustrations were easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I won't lie, this pattern was a challenge and at one point I swore I would never sew this pattern up ever again. Now that it is done, I'm thinking about another version of this dress.
I love the details, the gathered yoke, the underlining, the darted yoke lining. It really is a beautiful dress pattern that has a lot of attention to the details that you don't find now-a-days.
There are three fabrics that I used for this pattern. I used a polyester suiting fabric for the main dress fabric. The sleeves and front yoke pieces were cut in a cotton blend. I also used the same fabric as the yoke and sleeves as my lining fabric (only the upper back and yoke pieces were used for lining. For the underlining fabric I used a nylon organza and it turned out not to be a wise decision. I wish I went with a silk organza. I know better for next time.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I forgot that I have womanly hips and did not adjust the hip area. I managed to save the dress by letting out the seam allowance as much as I could. My bad.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely, I would make better fabric choices next time. And yes, I would recommend it to others.
It really was a challenge to my sewing skills and patience. All is good, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out in the end.
