Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think it did look like the pattern on the photo. Its a really loose fitting dress and the flange on it I think really makes the dress what it is.
I cut a size 12 and it was a good fit.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very simple. There is nothing on this pattern that would get your stumped I don't think. No complications and really quick to sew up. Maybe an hour or two.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern was perfect for summer heat we have been having in Australia, Brisbane. Its so easy to just throw over your head and wear out. It can be made in really lightweight material which makes it nice a breathable.
I figured that I could get my head through the neck without making the back neck slit so I left that off this dress. I have previously made it with the slit however and both worked well. Depends how dressy you want it or how much time you want to spend making it.
I have also made this dress in a Australia Day costume/attire which will be interesting to wear on the day hehe. You can check out photos on my blog.
Polyster fabric for this one but I recommend any lightweight cotton or polyester.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This dress I have just removed the back slit. I also make all of my Vogue dresses longer than the pattern, so this one was also longer. I would rather make them longer and shorten them than make it and it be really short which I find most Vogue dresses are.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
You may think this dress is not that flattering and I can understand by looking at the photo on the pattern but its really cool. I love it and I would highly recommend it for a nice breathable, flowy summer dress. Some may need to alter it to come in at the sides which is fine but it does really look nice in the end. I have had lots of comments already when I wear mine out.
More photos on my blog let me know what you think!!
