Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I changed the neckline so that it looks more like the pattern photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I pretty much like everything about this pattern!
Fabric Used: Coral Pink Ponte Knit 60W and Coral Pink/White Scattered Dots Print ITY Knit 58W both from FabricMartFabrics.com
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lowered the neckline two inches and added pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I want to sew it again, but maybe not until next year. I have a lot of other patterns I want to try. For sure I'm coming back to this one. Yes I recommend!
Conclusion: I am not big on polka dots but I thought this fabric with the multi-sized dots and having the dots making sort of a stripe was cool so I bought it. I was so mesmerized by the polka dots on this fabric that I stared and stared at it after I attached the skirt to the bodice. In fact, I totally forgot to hem the skirt and wore it to the office unhemmed! Oops! Luckily no one noticed. So far I have not decided if I'm going to hem it or not. I think it looks fine and the length is not too bad on me. I did notice on this version that the waistline seems to dip down in the back, not sure what I did there. The ponte I used seemed to be pretty firm even compared to the other ponte I have, so if I use this sort of fabric again I will think about going up a size in the bodice. Although it does fit me, it shows the lumps across my back. Maybe I should just start making my own bras and I won't have that problem!
