|Pattern Description: Vogue's description: Pullover dress has fitted bodice, skirt front/back cut-in-one, no right side seam, and left side zipper. A: bias bodice. B: button/loop shoulder closing, dress cut on crosswise grain of fabric. Bias, self-lined cummerbund has hook/eye closure.|
Pattern Sizing: I made view A in a size 14. Which is my recommended size. It worked out well since I was lining the dress.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes except I didn't make the cummerbund.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy enough to follow. But the instructions were for an un-lined dress. Things got a little trick when I added in the lining.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the ending dress. It is really cute.
Probably my only dislike was that the instructions didn't include a lining. Other PR's recommended a lining for better wear and I willing followed their advice.
Fabric Used: Pink/ Orange plaid Silk taffeta and china silk for the lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a lining. I ended up taking in the shoulders to a size 6. I added 2 inches under the bust- but should have used 1 1/2 inches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If the right fabric and the right occasion came up, I probably would. I recommend it to others.
Conclusion: It is a really cute and fun dress. I really love the end result.
A special thanks to my co-workers who helped with the pictures.
