|Pattern Description: |
Miss & Miss Petite Knit Mock Wrap Dress or Top, Pull-On Dress or Top, Skirt & Sash
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't really follow them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I don't like the neckline facing. I found that it sat funny.
I've made three versions from this pattern, all in different poly stretch knit things found in the bargain bin
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
View G I made minus the cuffs and did a rolled neckline instead of facing it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, it's a very useful and wearable pattern design.
I made the sleeveless top, dress D and dress G. In the top I found that the fused neck facing makes the neckline a bit too strengthened and it contrasts sharply with the knit fabric. With view D I used the facing, but found the instructions horrible, but managed to make it work. View G I overlocked the neck edge, stitched it down then turned it over itself and stitched again. Seems to be working so far.
Very comfy to wear and went to work very well. If, like me, you are rather curvy with a small waist view D does look good, but I ended up wearing a ribbon around my waist to give it a more finished, less sack like look.
2013 MINI WARDROBE VERSION
Made in a plum stretch knit with 3/4 sleeves I still love this pattern years after I first made it. Like most of my competition entries I was short on fabric and if I hadn't been I would DEFINITELY add some length. The BF thinks the tie belt is unnecessary but I like it as I feel it dresses the top up a bit. I didn't fuse the neckline but stay stitched and doubled over instead as it worked so well on the older version (which is still going strong).
