Misses Dress, top Dress and shirt in wrap-around look. The front parts overlap and are held in place with ribbons.
I've made view B, the cap sleeved knee-length dress.
8 - 18. I used the 12 but used size 14 at the waist. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
You betcha. I didn't test this either so I can safely say I know my basic adjustments when it comes to knit dresses. What do you think of the fit? Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were easy to follow. They're very logical and once I finished the top part of the dress, the rest of the dress and sleeve caps were a breeze. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love how simple this style is and can be made using an all-over print or a dark coloured knit fabric.
The skirt is not that bulky so it doesn't make me look hip heavy like some fuller knit dress skirts can do. I avoid skirts that are any widers than an A-line skirt. Fabric Used:
Two-way stretch knit with an all-over animal print for Jungle January over at Pretty Grievances. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I graduated the waist from 12 to 14 by following the multi-size lines.
2. Adjusted the skirt at the hips so that it would finish at the knee and not below the knee.
3. Folded 2cm out the neckline to avoid any gaps.
4. Added 2cm to the back shoulder seam and removed 2cm from the front shoulder seam (roll shoulder adjustment)
For some reason, there was no need to to a sway back adjustment. I would normally have done this at the back waist as one of my first round of tissue adjustments, but I didn't need to do this. Bonus Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This dress is now a TNT knit dress. If you have it in your pattern stash, use it.
Be aware that the tie is right under the bust so if you're bust is bigger than a b-cup, add enough length in the front pieces to cover your bust in total. You need to avoid having the bodice seam line running over the bust peak Conclusion:
This pattern is a big thumbs up for me! Rawr - Jungle on.
