It is a dress pattern ;) . I needed a casual dress/ dress for a party... this one seemed to fit the bill. Pattern Sizing:
I cut the pattern to size 12. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it looks like the picture in the pattern . I need to update the pic... this is taken as it is finished and before a good pressing... The pleats will look SOOOO much better after pressing... I'll update after I finish the jacket and bag so I can take a pic of the whole outfit ;) Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I did not have any problems following them... What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like the dress pattern/style... I don't dislike the pattern, but I personally had difficulty getting the "V" point in the front and center. Fabric Used:
100% light weight wool, super pleasing to work with! This is the first time I have worked with sewing wool and I really enjoyed it. I also prefer to knit with wool, just seems to work better for me , the fabric moves easily and is not to slippery, also very easy to handle/maneuver. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I skipped out on the pockets. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I really like how easy it came together, whether or not I sew it again would depend on if I had enough time again to do the skirt facing... that is an undertaking... (a project in itself!) but sooo worth it, it is a really nice dress. I would recommend it to anyone who likes pleats and has patience with pinning and hemming ;) ... Conclusion:
This was a learning experience for me... second time ever sewing with pleats they are super easy. I am glad I went for another pleated pattern. I really like the twirl of the skirt it is a great spinning skirt for dancing
