Pattern Description: Close-fitting, pullover dress has self neck binding, tiers, and raw edge finish. A: sleeves. B: self armhole binding. and yes it is close fitting, I needed to lose 5 pounds before I could wear mine and a pair of spanx doesn't hurt either.
Pattern Sizing: Misses 6-22. I made my usual 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? yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have really liked this design and have been seeing it in the stores for about a year. Glad that there is now a pattern.
Fabric Used: stripped rayon lycra poly
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: This pattern calls for single layer layout. This is because the placement lines for the top pieces need it, however, I cut the main dress out on the fold, double layer, and marked the lines afterwards. Because of a shortage of fabric, some of my layers are not as "crooked" as they should have been.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I think I need just one of these dresses. It will definitely keep me from over eating!
Conclusion: fun dress to wear and make. Easier then I thought too.
