|Pattern Description: |
A vintage Hawaiian style muu-muu, from tiki craze days. Easy to sew, no zippers. Fitted front made possible with a bra strap sewn inside.
Great! I made a MISS 14. I am 36-30-38.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes! I barely used them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like fitted front and flowy back.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a muslin of the front of the dress and a little bit of the back. I gave myself 5/8" bigger arm hole for my big guns and that made a nice difference. Also, inside the dress, there is a strap to pull the front tight. I lowered that a bit to my waist because it wasn't flattering me enough.
After a few wears, I learned the seams on each shoulder and the front of the neckline would greatly benefit from being reinforced somehow. I notice the thread pulling on the dress in those spots.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely! This dress was fantastic. Easy, quick, rewarding. This is a wonderful pattern for the beginner.
