|Pattern Description: |
Potato sack/grandmother style nightgown turned into a possibly wearable shirt. Why didn't listen to the other reviews?!?!?!
In reality it is a tunic/dress pattern, that is easy to sew. It just doesn't look good in the end.
6-18. I cut a size 12 as there is a lot of ease in this.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Well, it looked like a sack.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use the instructions, as I self lined the bodice, and lined the dress.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I initially liked that it lacked a zipper, but in the end it turned out to be such a sack dress, I hated how it turned out.
a sea green eyelet from fabric.com. I was so excited about keeping the scallop from the selvages of the fabric - but in the end I had to cut it off. scallop
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Self lined the bodice and lined the skirt. I ended up cutting off the bottom of the skirt to make this into a shirt - as the dress made me look pregnant.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will not sew this again. I would not recommend it. I originally wanted to make this look from the sew weekly website. While the drawing kind of looks like the dress, this looked nothing like the finished dress.
This was "easy to sew," but it just doesn't look good. I wouldn't recommend this for a new sewer, as you could get discouraged at the outcome. However, it does make a kind of wearable shirt.
