|Pattern Description: |
Misses' Knit Dress in three lengths with bodice variations
4-20, I cut a 4.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The neck yoke did not come out right for me, it was too small and would have shifted the dress up way to high. I didn't really like the way that the gathered sections of the skirt part were so obviously ending at the sides, would have preferred a more even gathering.
A fun 2way stretch knit that was given to me as a gift last Christmas, so I really couldn't say where it came from!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I re-cut and enlarged the neck yoke, used very narrow seams on the bodice mid-section, and made a shorter version than pictured. And I eliminated the zipper entirely, can't see a use for it with knit in this dress!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Rather luke-warm on this one. Haven't had the greatest of luck with Project Runway patterns, for some reason. I won't sew it again, for certain. I sought it out for the neat neckline that it offered, but that aside, it's not that great. Others seem to have had great success with this pattern, so I wouldn't dissuade people from trying it.
Here's more info and pictures on My blog
I think I'm giving up on Project Runway, though their designs are neat.
