Pattern Description: Dress has fitted, lined bodice variations, gathered skirt and single layer tie ends (wrong side will show) with narrow hem, and side zipper. B: semi-fitted skirt. A,B: mock wrap, front bodice extends into pleated back neckline. C: front shoulder pleats.
I made view A , added sleeve C and shortened the sleeve.
Pattern Sizing: 8-16 I cut the 12 and could have gone down to the 10. It's a little big on me
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? I only glanced over the directions but they seem very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the retro style of the pattern.
Fabric Used: Taffeta
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added/shortened a sleeve. Instead of wearing the neckline like it's shown in the picture, I folded mine outward and tacked it at the waist.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't think I will make this one again but if you like this style dress, go for it.
Conclusion: Great pattern if you like this style.
