|Pattern Description: Dress with Collar, asymmetrical neckline, princess seams with draped front, cap sleeves.|
Pattern Sizing: Custom sized, you send in your measurements and receive a custom pattern PDF via email.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are probably translated via a translation website from Russian into your language so they are a bit garbled. I could figure them out just fine, but that may lead to some questions in a beginner. If you are familiar with construction order then you should be OK.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? the pattern is really well marked, not a lot of markings but just enough for construction and they matched perfect which is nice. I liked the shape, the asymmetrical neckline and the front drape.
Fabric Used: Ponte knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No pattern alterations or design changes. Unusual for me but I wanted to see how well the pattern fit as ordered, and the fit was really great.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes I will sew it again, I can see making a sleevless version for summer and I am thinking of making it as a top, with long sleeves.
Conclusion: Very happy to finally try a Lekala pattern, I have been looking at this pattern company for a long while and now I will try more.
