Pattern Description: Misses Dress with gathered front and knot detail, sleeve variations.
Pattern Sizing: 8 to 18 I made size 8 View C with changes to the sleeve.
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? Very easy dress to sew up
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the knot front, the V neck
Fabric Used: $1.99 Fabric Mart Rayon Knit I was able to get a TOP also out of the 2 yards I had ordered besides this dress, it is my $3.00 dress!!! Black rayon knit from Joann's for the contrast.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took out some gathering in the front by folding out several small amounts in the tissue. I used a black contrast for the back and inside bodice.
I used the sleeve from View A except I shortened it, lined it with the print by seaming the hem right sides together with the black then folding the print to the inside with a small amount showing on the hem of the sleeve then treating it as one (gave the look of banding) I coverstitched the knot overlay edges despite the fact instructions have it as just folded under, I also coverstitched the neck and forgo the binding.
Would you sew it again? no too many other dress patterns to sew Would you recommend it to others? yes very easy to dress to wear and sew.
