|Pattern Description: |
View A is a sleeveless fitted dress with princess seams. It features piping between the seams, a flounced skirt, an invisible back zipper and is fully lined.
View B features a sleeveless fitted crop top, with an invisible back zipper, and a skirt. Both pieces are fully lined. The skirt also closes in the back with an invisible zipper and a buttoned waistband. It has front rounded pockets trimmed with piping.
I made the skirt this time with the piping.
I made the gorgeous dress earlier.
Euro sizes 34 - 48
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes they were easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a truly versatile pattern.
You get good value from having a dress, skirt and top pattern in one purchase.
The princess seams and skirt seams provide lots of fitting and detailing options.
The pockets are the right length for my size and will be handy when I make this as a work skirt.
I used a silk fabric from PittTrading.com.au
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The seams in this skirt allowed me to add more fitting to the skirt body.
The length is fine especially with the 'twirl' layer.
I was thinking of extending the skirt and adding a back vent to use this as my TNT work skirt. Pauline has already done the hard work to make this a well fitting skirt.
The skirt post shows how I added piping and an exposed zipper.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I'm going to keep this skirt as my TNT especially as it allows me to add detailing by using piping or colour-blocking it because of its well designed panels.
