Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much. It was huge on me.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think the dress ran very large. I like my knits to have negative ease, and this pattern definitely did not. I thought the tie was very bulky too. I did not like how the tie was drafted and constructed either. The pattern did not allow for it to be wrapped behind you first.
Rayon/lycra knit. (muslin fabric because it was so cheap!)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Even though I made the size 8, I had to take the side seams in a lot. I'm still not happy with the fit. Too much ease. I made a self binding instead of just hemming the neckline. It is much prettier this way and it doesn't stretch out of shape.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Nope. I'm glad I got this one off my to-do list because I can move on and try to find another pattern for my gorgeous EmmaOneSock bird knit.
My mother who is a rtw size 10 fit into the McCalls size 8. The dress now belongs to her.
