Pattern Description:

Misses dress.

Pattern Sizing:

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Not really, since I altered it! I extended the darts into princess seams and added a button placket down the front. I also deepened the rounded neckline to make it a bit more summery.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

I wouldn't know since I didn't follow them!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Great basic lines. I love how the center seam falls under the bust rather than on the waist.

Fabric Used:

Turquoise linen from Sawyerbrook fabrics.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

This is already my second time sewing this pattern as a dress, and I've made it several times as a top too.


Great pattern, I've gotten a lot of mileage out of it.

The trim and the button front really take this up a notch! Looks great.
