Loose-fitting, pullover dress (semi-fitted through bust) has double-layer neckband with raw edge finish, blouson bodice, elastic, seamed waist, side front pockets, front pleats and stitched hems. Pattern Sizing:
6-14 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?
They are easy and even though this was my second run through within a week on this pattern I still referred to them for the pocket detail. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I simply love this dress. It is so comfortable and easy to wear. I love the pocket detail and the double-layered raw edged finish at the neckline. No dislikes except that the skirt is SO short. Fabric Used:
Cotton lycra knit Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lengthed the bodice 1" and the skirt length almost 3" and it is still short! Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. I wanted to make it in a solid because the details are so cute and they don't stand out on a busy print. I won't make it again right away, but I will make a shorter sleeved version for the summer since it's so easy to throw on and go. I am also glad to have learned the double-layer raw edge finishing technique and I will use it on other tees. Conclusion:
One of the cutest patterns I've run into in a while. Here are some additional pics: Pleats forming pocket detail Double-layer raw edge neckline
