Pattern Description: Misses Dress, Tunic and Headband Cynthia Rowley Collection
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?This is the second one I've sewn in a week and it's bound to become a TNT summer favorite.
Fabric Used:Sheer cotton voile in an ikat print from my stash. Lining and placket in soft pima cotton.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I added a lining, or technically I guess it would be an underlining since I cut the lining fabric using only the front and back main body pieces and treated them as one with the fashion fabric, then serged all seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes - I'm dreaming up combinations for an entire summer's worth of these. I'd love to do the drawstring waist version from a border print.
Conclusion: I'm back again with the version I did for my mom for our upcoming cruise. This time I made the long sleeved view, leaving the sheer voile sleeves unlined. I think I like hers better than mine - maybe she'll let me borrow it!
