Pattern Description: THis is a costume pattern of a medieval type dress, this is made as a wedding dress for my sister for her second wedding.
Pattern Sizing: I bought the larger size pattern
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? it looked very simelar to the pattern picture except i added lace to the sides and front which gave it a different look
Were the instructions easy to follow? I glanced over the instructions and did not look closely at them, I did find a typo error on the instructions themselves and you followed what it said exactly you would have made a big mistake.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I did not like the skirt portion the instructions where difficult because of a typo.
Fabric Used: I used a satin and also a sheet of brown lace
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The dress was rather low cut so I added a lace addition to the neckline and it worked out really well. I also had to do a full bust alteration on a princess seam which I had never done before. I used Nancy Ziemermans idea for alterations but I had not actually seen her do a princess seam. I think I got it right however.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I may make one for myself in case we ever go to a medieval fair but I don't know it took a lot of time and was kind of difficult
Conclusion: The typo was on the skirt construction portion of the instructions. There are two pieces that are cut 4, the written description had one number and the picture had the other number so one of them was wrong. I figured it out though the picture didn't look like the pattern piece I had to read it several times to make sure. I had this in a comment and moved it to the review itself. It has now been quite a long time since I made this skirt so I don't remember what the numbers were. It is obvious when you look at the written instruction. You must use their picture descriptions and use the pattern piece pictured not the number used in the written instructions.
