ETA - I have made View A of this dress now as well. Love it as much as the first version. Link to photos of the second version at the end of the review
Misses' Dresses - Workroom from Project Runway - misses' belted knit dress with neckline and sleeve variations. New Look Just 4 Knits sewing pattern.
Multisize US 10-22. This pattern runs true to size I made a size 12 top and used the size 14 for the skirt, which correspond to my bust and hip sizes!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. The only difference is that my belt is longer than the one pictured, but that is easily fixed.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were better than usual. This pattern is written for knits and suggests when to use an overlocker (serger) to finish the seams.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love that the faux wrap sits beautifully without any gaping. I love the pockets and the details. No dislikes in this pattern!
Knit jersey which is dry to the touch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No alterations made.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I hope to sew it again in Autumn and make view A with the collar and 3/4 sleeves with tabs. I think this is a great pattern and highly recommend it!
