|Pattern Description: |
Misses' wrap front dress with:
- A-line shape and dropped shoulders;
- side ties variations;
- optional sleeves and collar.
I made dress D, sleeveless with collar.
AAX (4-6-8-10); DD (12-14-16-18)
I cut size 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the A-line shape of the dress and the dropped shoulders.
I like how simple and easy it was to sew all the pieces together.
I also like how the back and the front cross-over necklines are finished.
And finally, I love the side ties that go completely around the back of the dress before being knotted to the centre front.
Moderate Stretch Polyester Knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not make any alterations to the dress except for the ties which were narrowed by half.
The front cross-over neckline is not too low. However, I stabilized it with a snap fastener sewed on the inside. The buttons are only there for prettyness.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I might sew it again, but I am not attracted by wrap garments. I am always worried that the ties are not securely attached or that there is too much slack at the cross-over.
This pattern would be a good option for anyone who is looking for a very easy, simple and quick to sew wrap dress: there are no waist seam, no darts, no tucks, no pleats and no gathering to do on the dress.
I am not a big fan of wrap dresses, but this one impressed me. I am surprised to see that it does not shift a lot when I move around.
