|Pattern Description: |
Pullover dress has front extending into back collar, fitted, front pleated bodice, raised waist, tie ends, two-piece sleeves with barrel cuffs, and stitched hem.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, very much so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but I think they are a bit sneaky putting lots of steps into one to make it look Very Easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really love the sleeves and the super long sash, the bodice is very similar in construction to Vogue 1287 (but easier).
John Kaldor Jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Nothing special - I cut a size 8 top and went up to a size 14 hip as I don't like bagginess round the bust, the lovely sash hides the fact that the top and skirt didn't quite come together properly. I found that sashes are put in very low and are in constant danger of being sewn in to the waist so I would recommend putting them in slightly higher up (I think I put them up by about half an inch ish and it didn't affect the end result at all) mine were also very heavy so after I'd tacked them to bodice I then removed them in annoyance until I was ready to sew the front and back together. I wish I'd read the reviews that say that the cuffs run large as I could have done with making them a bit tighter (which would have been easy to do).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again but have so many patterns waiting that I probably won't. I would definitely recommend it to others but with a small note of caution - I didn't find it Very Easy - I think the combination of stretch fabric and construction that relies on matching accurately isn't necessarily for a beginner.
And measure your wrists!
A really well designed, flattering dress!
