|Pattern Description: |
Knit, fitted dress with side ruching over torso. Knee length.
Made a 14 with seams sewn to give an extra 3/4" of ease.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Kinda, sorta maybe. I have a more hilly landscape.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but I skipped the lining and fussy finish to the ruched side seams. I ran easing stitches on front and back side seams, with F and B together, then serged them together with interfacing over the stitching line.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Looks chic and adorable, right? Especially with the camo ruching, which always works well for me. Doesn't my main posed photo look fantastic?!
However, this is how I really look, standing as I often do, as bipeds generally do. Shlumpurumple with baggy fabric all over the place.
Rayon lycra from Sawyer Brook, which is a lot less frumpy design than this dress makes out.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I let out the seams a little and raised the hem above the knees. I shouldn't have let out the seams, instead taking in the waist to a smaller size. I think I'm too grossly hour glass for the delicateness of this look. My boobs are oddly disguised, while the waist ruches bag and droop over my belly and butt.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?No, but it could look fantastic on the appropriate body.
Conclusion: Wearable, but not loved. I may just shorten it to a t shirt and take in the sides.
