Pattern Description: Misses' knit mini-dress, tunic and top can be made with a front twist or draped neckline with five different sleeve variations to choose from.
Pattern Sizing: 4-20. I made a 14 in View D with some simple alterations.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it even was the same color.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very simple to follow. The view I made has only two pattern pieces with a total of three pieces to sew together. Easy peasy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the draped neckline and that it isn't cut super low. It's very flattering with all the drapey material, but it's a controlled drape that isn't the least bit sloppy. It's a really wearable dress.
Fabric Used: I used a ponte knit (cotton/poly blend I think?) from my visit to A Fabric Place for the Baltimore PatternReview Day this month.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthened the hem by 4" to hit right above the knee. This dress would be tunic length otherwise. I made the hips more of an a-line because I'm pear shaped. I added a self fabric belt because I feel like a nipped waist looks best for me in a dress like this.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew this again. It's a basic knit pattern and I'm obsessed with knits right now. I even made View A in modal. I actually went down a size for that one because of the super stretchy nature of modal. Yes I think others should give this one a try.
Conclusion: Another winner. I have a toddler and need easy wear and wash clothes like this but don't want to be a frumpy gal in sweats. This pattern makes everyday, wearable, stylish things that feel like jammies! More images and talk about this pattern omy blog.
