A cowl neck top with ruched sleeves. Pattern Sizing:
6 - 12 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but I did create a different bottom and changed the bottom of the dress. the top part looks like the drawing.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought the fit was good. I did take it in at the sides. I always altere my patterns on my dress form which is my size first. Fabric Used:
I used a cotton lycra knit. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut it in the size recommended but ended up removing about an inch at the side seams. I shortened the top pattern and created a waistline casing for elastic. I drafted a skirt with pockets to create an original dress. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I really like this top pattern and would love to try it in a print. I really like the ruched sleeves. Conclusion:
I like this pattern and consider it a great basic to have in my wardrobe.
