The perfect knit dress. Pattern Sizing:
8 - 16. I made the 14. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did although I used the short sleeve version with a v-neckline. Click here for more details. Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were easy to follow and I like the tips provided. They are placed where you would want to read them but don't distract from the instruction sequence. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern is a breeze to sew and a snap to fit.
There's nothing that I don't like about this pattern. Fabric Used:
Two dry knits with moderate stretch. Depending on the occasion, this is a good dress to use with an all-over patterned knit.
I can see using a slinky knit would give you a more evening look. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Roll shoulder adjustment
Moved the front of the sleeve closer to the bust to make the bust look slimmer on a full busted person. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I've now made this beauty 3 times.
The first version used a chevron print knit. Here is the first version. Read about what my SIL said about these dresses. Conclusion:
This is such a classic style that's easy to whip up.
