Pattern Description: close-fitting pullover dresses with neckline and sleeve variations, narrow hem
Pattern Sizing:(8-16) (18W-24W). I made view B in a size 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, except for my modifications.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes, no problems.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?View B has a draped neckline, and I'm not sure how much I really like it. It seems to take a lot of fiddling when you are wearing it. Also, bending over can be more revealing than you would like. And when a pattern says "close-fitting" translate that to "tight."
Fabric Used:a polka-dot polyester lycra knit from Joann Fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:After I got done, the dress was tighter than I would like across the middle. So I cut it
off at the waist and raised the skirt up and resewed it together underneath the bodice. In the future I will shorten the waist before I cut the fabric out. I also added a little to the length of the skirt and the sleeves. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, I have already made it again for my daughter. I do recommend it, just check the fit before you cut it out.
Conclusion: A great basic dress pattern. You can make a dress for every season using this pattern. You can read more on my blog
