Pattern Description: Misses Dress
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 8 but had to grade down a lot for the look I wanted.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done with it? Kinda
Were the instructions easy to follow? This is labeled an Vogue "Easy" pattern and it is. Its a pretty straight forward and the princess seams make it easy to fit.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the collar.
Fabric Used: I used a Ponte Roma I got from Michael Levin (I love working with this fabric) it is easy to work with, has some stretch so I fits great and feels great. I got my fabric at lowpricefabric.com and there us a coupon code "mimiholiday" for 10% off your purchase
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I omitted the side invisible zipper because my fabric has a nice amount of stretch so the zipper was unnecessary.
Would you sew it again? No but I am going to use the collar to make a jacket
Would you recommend it to others? Yes
