Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? The bodice certainly does! I changed the skirt style.
Were the instructions easy to follow? No. Not at all. They are very confusing, especially because there are too many pattern pieces. They have both a full lining AND facings. Why? I omitted the facings and just used a full lining.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? LOVE this pattern. It is the first pattern I ever bought but it took me a full year to make it. The cutest summer dress, and this anchor fabric helps keep it playful with the open back. The ties in the back and the empire waist make me feel like a giant cupcake and I LOVE it!
Fabric Used: Blue 100% cotton with Anchors embroidered on.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1" Full bust adjustment
1/2" reduction to neckline twisted into dart
1/2" reduction to arm scythe twisted into dart
1" taken out of back middle seam
1/4" wedges removed from back pattern piece to reduce gaping
Used a gathered skirt instead of the suggested circle skirt.
Added in seam pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I LOVE this pattern. It is so much fun to wear and makes me so happy. I received compliment after compliment on the style and the fabric. I am considering making this bodice using a floral chiffon and adding a maxi skirt with a thigh slit for a wedding I have mid-July. Can't decide if it would be too much though. hmmm....I'll certainly make it again soon though. The boat neck is so lovely!
