Racer back dress with gathered skirt, made for knit fabric.
This is a true to size pattern, I find that simplicity usually runs big in the top so I cut this in a size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes only mine is in a much brighter print
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, I have made this dress before so I didn't follow them too closely, but for someone making the dress for the first time they are great.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the dress itself, but attaching the bodice to the straps is a beast. I struggled with the racer back especially, it ended up being uneven when I finished. I may go back and fix this later.
A jersey knit Aztec print that I found on Etsy.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None other than doing some top stitching to make the dress lay as I wanted it to.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes its a very simple dress that looks cute in a multitude of prints and solid combination. I have already made this once before as well.
