|Pattern Description: |
Loose-fitting, lined dress has yoke front, back zipper and narrow hem. Topstitching.
A5(6-8-10-12-14) I cut a size 12 but will probably cut a 10 next time.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Kind of. I added a V neck in the back.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't really look at them. I did my own thing since I was trying to copy an RTW dress. I mostly used my serger and my coverstitch.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a great pattern. I like the skirt and the bodice is nicely drafted.
I used a rayon knit fabric from Hancock. I found it on the clearance table for $3.98/yard.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut the bodice differently to make the chevron. I cut the back bodice in a V shape and added an exposed zipper. I added 3 inches to the skirt since it was it little too short for my taste. I used the Pattern Runway method
to sew the exposed zipper. Great method! The dress is fully lined with a 2 way stretch lining. I decided to give this Colette Pattern method a try and loved it. It is faster than my own method.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew it again. I like the colorblock version. I highly recommend it.
I love the "bullseye dress" as my friends named it. I have a weakness for stripes. The original dress I got my inspiration from is from Dolce Vita and cost $242. Mine cost merely $15. More on my blog
