Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?For the most part. I used a large scale print fabric and my dress was not as tight fitting.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow and very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked everything about the pattern though I did not use purchased seam binding. Instead I created bias strips out of the dress fabric and secured the folded edge with steam a seam. It worked beautifully.
Fabric Used: Viscose with spandex.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: When the dress was described as close fitting, I was afraid it would be too small and cut a size larger. MISTAKE! Now it's a little big.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I highly recommend this pattern and hope to sew it again soon in a solid.
Conclusion: What a winner for Vogue Patterns! The ruched bodice flatters all shapes and the pattern is a breeze to put together.
