|Pattern Description: |
Lined dress has yoke fronts extending into sleeves, close-fitting bodice with side back seams, raised waist, semi-fitted skirt, side front extends to lower side back, no side seams, mock front bands, and concealed snap closure.
6-14 in my envelope. I made my usual size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Okay. I have to give the instructions a C-. There is some very intricate work in the bodice around the yoke, front and side front pieces. These same pieces are lined, doubling your pleasure. I just think they could have done a better job with descriptions and made the illustrations less confusing. Once you get through that portion of the bodice, the rest is easy as pie. If I didn't love the finished result so much I might rant a little more, but I have to forgive BVM.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the style of this dress and the clean, simple front with the hidden snap closure. The fit is great and it can be made dressy or casual depending on fabric and accessories. My only dislike was the instruction issue described above.
A linen/cotton blend. Polyester lining that I regret using now. If I'd known how I was going to love this dress I would have used Ambience or something nicer.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will absolutely sew this again and very highly recommend.
Because of my frustration with the bodice instruction this one was in close danger of being a wadder. I'm so happy I persevered because I adore this dress! A few more thoughts and pictures on my blog.
