|Pattern Description: |
Lined dress has fitted bodice variations, midriff, tapered or flared skirt and back zipper. C and E: side front and side back seams, and side pockets. A, B, D and F: semi-fitted skirt and back slit. D, E and F: bias front bodice with fold-back facing.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the cowl neck and the fact there are a number of different variations in the pattern. I didn't like how low the front lower armscye was (at least on me), and if I was making another sleeveless version of this I would rectify this.
Brushed cotton with a very fine soft cotton for the back bodice and midriff lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Usual size for bodice and one size larger for midriff and skirt. I did not line the skirt; I really did not think the brushed cotton needed it. I used an invisible zipper. I omitted the in-seam pockets. I had to shorten the skirt length by 2.5 inches - be warned if you are on the shorter side this skirt is long.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend to others. I might sew this pattern again, but one of the other versions.
Love my new bright, colourful dress, warm and easy to wear.
