Special occasion dresses in two lengths.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
For the most part, the construction was straightforward. Since the skirt is cut on the bias, it is a large pattern piece and it is split into two. I was able to avoid this because the fabric was 54" wide and I purchased the required amount for 45" wide.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The directions were straightforward and there were not that many steps in the construction. I found the description of the "bands" and their "facings" a bit confusing and sewed the wrong pieces together. I caught the mistake and was able to correct it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not use an overlay.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't know if I would sew it again because my daughter loves to pick out new styles. However, I think the style is classic and elegant and is one of the best I've made for her.
My daughter received many compliments on this dress....it has an outstanding look.
