|Pattern Description: |
This is a Project Runway Pattern for a child's dress, jumper, jacket or vest and hat.
I made the dress with the sweetheart neckline.
Size A, 3 - 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. Fairly. But I did deviate slightly from the pattern (see below).
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a really nice, simple style. A simple bodice with an A-line skirt with pleats. But you can vary the pattern in so many ways. I would like to make the jacket and hat sometime...if I ever get round to it!
A cotton with woven spots in the design that I bought for virtually nothing in India. I used a very fine cotton to fully line the dress that I had lying around in my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I fully lined the dress. I understitched the lining part of the bodice. I mainly used french seams throughout, and a hong kong finish at the zipper opening. I also put tucks in to the front of the bodice, just for a little bit of variety.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably won't make this dress again, but would recommend it to others.
Simple dress, great style.
