Pattern Sizing: I orginally cut the 12 but ended up cutting it again in a size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? They are very straight forward and easy to understand.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the design lines of this pattern.
Fabric Used: Ponte Roma
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I plan on making another view of this dress.
Conclusion: This was a great pattern but beware of the sizing. IMO this pattern runs VERY large. I normally always cut a 12 when working with vogue knit patterns. I'll do a flat pattern measurement if I'm unsure but I didn't this time. I wish I would have. It started to look WAY big so I sewed it up and tried it on and it was HUGE. I took it all back out and did a flat pattern measurement and I cut the 8 based on that. It was still a little too roomy for me so I took it up down the center back. When I make this again, I'm making a muslin first because I plan on using leather insets.
