Misses' semi-fitted and flared dress, has princess lines, extended shoulders, back zipper and four neckline variations.
I made dress B, with V-neckline and front straps.
KK (8-10-12-14); U5 (16-18-20-22-24)
I used size 10 and 12.
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 front V-neck with the straps.
I like the princess seams and the extended shoulders.
I also like the A-line shape.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I sewed the shoulders and the neckline in my usual 12. The other pattern pieces were sewn in one size smaller.
I shortened the waist by 1" (Petite adjustment).
I raised the V-neckline by 5/8".
I removed 5 1/2" in length from the dress at hemline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I might sew it again and I would recommend it to others.
Many neckline options come with this pattern so we can make different looks. I have already made the round neckline version (dress F), which was the subject of a separate review.
Very pretty look dress. I love the nice effect of the front straps above the V-neck.
