Pattern Sizing: 30" - 54" bust with multi cup sizes
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? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? love the sizing options. It needed very little adjustment and the easiest FBA I have ever made
Fabric Used: Polyester dry knit from Spotlight
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: My high bust is 39" and full bust is 45". In theory I should choose the 35d and do a FBA but I used the 40D with a small FBA. I only added width in the FBA but not length. I found it loose at the centre back so took it in about 1 1/2 at the bottom of the centre back. My front band was a bit loose (this is stretchy fabric in all directions) so I shortened it by nearly 2 inches. After wearing it all day I am going to shorten the back bodice - the shirt seems to be dragging it down too much
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes and Yes. This is my 2nd - I made a muslin in ponte and I have a floral polyester knit and a purple stripe ready to cut out.
Conclusion: an awesome dress - really comfortable and easily adjustable for fit. next time I would cut wider front bands - mainly because this polyester is slippery and hard to sew a narrow band. i am also keen to try a stripe.Not terribly happy with the photo my teengae son took - the angle and shadows make my girls look huge - maybe time to try a different bra!
