|Pattern Description: |
Lined, fitted dress, above mid-knee length, has short raglan sleeves, tucked neckline, pleated, straight skirt and back zipper.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but nicer.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
No problems with the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It was an oddly shaped little dress with avant-garde styling and so I was intrigued. It wound up just as oddly shaped, but I still like that. The neckline is lovely as is the bodice shaping.
A polyester matelasse in a sagey green.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Naturally, I made the skirt about 12 inches longer.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I made a wearable muslin in a poly gabardine and one in the fashion fabric. I don't need any others, but I think it would look adorable on my teenager.
It's no mystery why this one wasn't terribly popular...boxy pleats at the hips?? Seriously? I went for it since I don't really have notable hips. The black gabardine muslin was adorable...I may finish it and wear it as a tunic if I can't convince my daughter to wear it. The matelasse didn't drape well enough to work for this dress. It's wearable, but without the drape, the bodice doesnt hang well. If I can convince one slender sewer to give this pattern a try, I will be satisfied.
