Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Polyester Knit  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: Long sleeved, fitted sheath style dress with a v-neck

Pattern Sizing: Regular in size 6/8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes - just two sizes larger!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is a great pattern that I've used before with much success with a woven fabric for the sleeveless version of this pattern. For some reason, the v-neck made in the knit was way too big - especially across the front!

Fabric Used: Polyester/cotton knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Slightly larger in hips

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Would - and will - sew it again, but will definitely make adjustments for knits!

Conclusion: This is a great wardrobe staple. You can read more about this project in my blog post at http://www.windows2wearables.com/the-post-in-which-i-tackle-a-knit-mccalls-2401-the-v-neck-version/

Happy Sewing!
