Current Tags What is a Tag:
Pattern Description:
Close-fitting and flared tops and dresses have neckline variations, elasticized (seamed) waist, and narrow hems. B: underlined. C and D: bias bodice, and side front seams.

Pattern Sizing:
XS-M. I originally cut a medium (on the first attempt at this pattern), but had to take it in. So for this dress, I cut an XS, and I like the fit.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love this pattern! It is cute and flattering. So easy to sew, quick to assemble.

Fabric Used:
I don't know what it was called, but it was a sturdy knit with great stretch and recovery.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Lengthened bodice, shortened skirt. Lowered front darts.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely! I've already made 4 dresses and 2 shirts. And I have plans for more.

Conclusion:
This is a great pattern for all. It's great fitting (once you get the sizing down right) and flattering.
