Pattern Description: Dress with sleeves, empire waist,
Pattern Sizing:I cut 12
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?They were quite straightforward, with only exception for inserting midriff interfacing
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the pleats in front and midriff section.
I don't like the sleeves, they are very tight. When I try to raise my arm, all dress is moving up. I don't know whether it's mistake in pattern or I should have made broad back adjustment.
Fabric Used:Some mix with high content of polyester
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I shortened the bodice back by 1,5cm and upper part of skirt by 1.5 cm. I did also sway back adjustment. I wish I had lenghten the front bodice, you can see that it is is moving up.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I might sew it again as sleeveles version for summer, or as LBD. I thing that version with sleeves would work in knit.
Conclusion: I'm not very pleased with this dress because of sleeves issue. I wear in from time to time, but I wish it was more comfortable.
