Misses dress with sleeve and bodice variations including flattering drape and ruffle detail. I made the bodice with flange sleeves from view D, with the skirt from view A/C and the flounce from view B/D.
8 - 18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, I think on the whole they were, although I didn't follow them totally as I did a full tummy adjustment, converted the darts to ease and also fully lined the dress (the pattern is for an unlined dress). See my blog for more details.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the fact there are potentially 2 different dresses in this envelope. I like the all the variations in the envelope. I think it is a very flexible pattern. Nothing I didnít like about it.
Wool mix tweed with acetate lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a fully tummy adjustment, converted the front darts to ease and fully lined the dress. I also lengthened the dress by 2 inches. See my blog for more details.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might well be tempted to sew one of the other variations, yes, and yes, I would definitely recommend to others.
Very pleased with my first sheath dress. It's warm, comfortable, wearable and washable. What's not to like?
