Pattern Sizing: (6-8-10-12-14),and (14-16-18-20-22). I made the size 14 because that was the largest in my pattern. I really needed to make a 16 maybe I will grab a larger size when they go on sale. I love this dress
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? Instructions were easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes. I loved that it only had 4 pattern pieces.
I am an extremely slow sewer but, I cut and sewed this to completion in about 2 hours
Fabric Used: I used a geometric ITY knit print. I think I got it from Fabric Mart but I'm not 100% certain
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Because the size I sewed was already a bit snug I opted not to add the elastic in the waist as I figure I will always wear a belt with this one.
I lengthened the bodice 1 inch
I lengthened the skirt 3 inches
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes just waiting on the perfect fabric to whip this up in.
Conclusion: This is a perfect simple dress. I have no complaints and will be sewing this again when I get the correct size.
