|Pattern Description: Misses Dress, Tunic, Top, Pants and Bias Skirt. I made the dress view A with changes.|
Side view on dress form
Pattern Sizing: 6-16. I made a 12 and it fits well, but that is one size smaller than what I measure on the pattern envelope.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, accept for the changes that I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very easy and straightforward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit and flare shape of this little dress. I am a big fan of princess seams.
The other views on this pattern are also cute and simple basics that are easy to make in a short amount of time.
Fabric Used: 100% linen from Mill End Store in Milwakee, OR.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the dress strapless as I wanted a simple summer dress for hot, sunny days (I made this back in July 2012 and am reviewing it in March 2013!). I really liked pattern New Look 2334, but I couldn't find any copies of it, so I made this very similar pattern.
I added a wide elastic inside of the top band so that the dress will stay up.
I eliminated the ribbon trim as well.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes!
Conclusion: Great little dress in this pattern, along with other cute coordinates. Perfect fast and easy pattern to whip up for hot summer day dress.
