Pattern Sizing: 6 - 12 14 - 20
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy to follow, although I always get slightly confused when sewing a lining to a sleeveless dress/top by machine in a continuous seam. It worked, though!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Like: 1.The pattern fits well and is simple to make.
2.The shoulders are cut in just enough to be stylish but not too much to be uncomfortably revealing.
3. Not too much excessive gathering at the elastic waistline
Dislike: The armholes gaped. I solved it by running an ease stitch along the front portion of the arm hole.
Fabric Used: Sequins on knit mesh, lined with china silk.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None other than using the ease stitch on the arms.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! I highly recommend and I hope to sew it again (short version).
Conclusion: I made this dress for my daughter who lives in another city. I made a muslin while she was visiting, but the dress was made without her trying it on. I could not have done this with a complicated pattern. It's an easy pattern that fits well.
