|Pattern Description: Misses dresses in various views. I made view C.|
Pattern Sizing: I used size 12 which is one smaller than my usual. I wanted it to be more fitted.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? More or less except mine is more fitted.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't look at the instructions. The pattern pieces spoke for themselves.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the easy, pullover style for a summer dress. I don't like how the neckline doesn't sit flat on my chest. I like the colour combo I chose and how the crinkle fabric fits on my body at 1 size smaller than my usual.
Fabric Used: A yellow cotton/poly broadcloth for the neckline and an orange crinkle cotton for the dress portion. Both remnants from my fabric stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Only the short waist adjustment.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? It looks like it had such promise! I think I'll try to do a proper muslin just for the neckline to see where it went wrong. If I can fix the neckline then I will definitely make this dress again. Sadly I don't have any of that orange crinkle cotton fabric left.
Conclusion: Easy to sew dress. Could have been a nice wearable muslin if I had tweak the neckline piece to sit flat on my chest.
