|Pattern Description: MISSES' LINED TOP AND DRESSES: Straight, hip length, lined top A, above mid-knee length lined dresses B, C, D have front high or low cowl, side and back gathers, sleeves in two lengths or sleeveless and optional back invisible zipper; top A has three-quarter length unlined sleeves; dress D has unlined, above elbow length sleeves.|
Pattern Sizing: BB(8-10-12-14), FF(16-18-20-22). I sewed a 10. I'm usually a 2 or 4 in rtw. I'm 5'2".
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, except for my modifications.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Lengthy and over-complicated, but thorough. After sewing this dress once and making my changes, I no longer need to look at the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The waist gathers didn't work for my petite frame. I like the classic style and cowl neckline. I like how quickly I can whip this dress up.
Fabric Used: ITY Jersey from fabric.com
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I've made this dress a few times now and made the same modifications as I stated in a previous review. I eliminated the gathers by folding the back and front pattern pieces 2" at the waist line marking, for a total of 4" of length gone from each piece. I did not insert a zipper, and I did not line the dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have made this dress a few times and would sew an entire wardrobe from this pattern if I could! I definitely recommend it.
Conclusion: After my modifications, I adore this dress. I have many other patterns unsewn, but I keep coming back to this one. I photographed the dress with a belt, but it looks good without it also.
