|Pattern Description: |
Project Runway Collection misses' dress with sleeve variations and separate fur collar and bib neckline.
i cut a straight 10, but shortened the bodice 1" front and back to match the back length of my moulage/sloper. this had the added bonus of adjusting the armscye princess seams (usually the bane of my existence) into something that actually fits and flatters.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yes, only i hemmed mine shorter and (for now) have omitted the flaps.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
i didn't open the instructions (hubris), but maybe i should have. i had a devil of a time inserting the side princess panel into the full-front bodice. tricky, tricky!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
this pattern is exceptionally well-drafted, with truly interesting design details. i love the full-front bodice with the princess seams, because it gives so many options on using contrast fabric or, as i did, a lace panel. i also love the lowered back waist detail. something about it is extremely flattering and elegant and gives the dress some extra flavor. the sleeve variations are great to play with, although i sort of love the simplicity of the cap sleeve most of all.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
other than shortening the bodice, none.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes, i will keep this dress on standby. it won't be at the top of my sewing queue any time soon, but it's a good one to have in the arsenal.
another winner from project runway for simplicity!
