Dress with 3 neckline/sleeve options. Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Absolutely a cinch!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
LOVED options for different sleeves and necklines, all interchangeable.
HATED the gape at the neck back.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1) Had to gather the front of the squared neckline and adjust facing to suit as it gaped, despite stay stitching it.
2) Needed to add darts to neck and adjust facings at back as it gaped substantially between the zip and shoulders.
3) Sleeves were a bit on the long side for me. In light of being a teacher and having to stretch my arms up to a board, I found the length restrictive. Had to cut off a couple of inches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I have now made 8 of these, with and without sleeves and in all necklines.
This pattern, or should I say all three, are quick and easy sewing projects. I can whip up one in two hours now.
