|Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?|
Yes, it looked like the pattern.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The pattern is pretty simple. View B had the simplest pieces - 3 major pieces (front, back and sleeves) plus a couple of facings. The other views appear simple as well. One of the views has a puffy long sleeve thing going on, which isn't for me, at least with the fabric I had.
The pattern instructions are straightforward and simple. There wasn't anything fancy with the dress in terms of applying techniques/sewing skills. It called for doing bust darts. I suppose the other thing, from a beginner's perspective, would be the facings, especially the one where it opens up the neckline (which I didn't do out of frustration). If you're a beginner, you'll have to do a bit of research with some terms used in the instructions. I have never seen "easing in the sleeve" before, so I looked it up. The Colette Sewing Handbook has a great illustration of how to do this.
Some kind of polyester. Can't recall.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- I lined the dress. The pattern doesn't call for lining. It does not show you how to either. And because of the lining, I didn't bother doing the facings which is what the pattern calls for.
- I didn't bother with the opening at the neckline
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would use it again. The pattern's generic enough that you could add embellishments. Also the pattern has variations with the sleeves and collar. Simple fabric change would make the next one unique enough.
