|Pattern Description: |
Lined shirt dress with fitted bodice, waistband, flared skirt, optional sleeves and collar.
I made a size 12 with a 2" FBA and width taken out of the bodice back.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, apart from the fact I added a dart with my FBA and I used contrasting buttons.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but there were about 50 steps!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really love the skirt and pocket bands. The dress is comfortable and flattering. It is very versatile.
Royal blue cotton lawn - very light and perfect for spring.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
A 2" FBA was required and I took some width out of the back. I have a large bust and narrow back, and next time I would take more out of the bodice back as I had to really stretch the waistband to get it to fit the bodice back. The back is quite loose on me, and it shows. I also made a rookie mistake and didn't smooth out the armscye when I was adjusting the pattern. The armscye is too low and you can see the top of my bra. But as I said, rookie mistake.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will make this dress again, perhaps with self-covered buttons. I also had the intention of making the sleeved version with a contrast collar, sleeve cuffs, pocket bands and buttons. But we'll see how ambitious I am next time! I definitely recommend this pattern to others.
