|Pattern Description: Sleeveless dress with pleated skirt.|
Pattern Sizing: I made size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Sure did!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy - the pattern was well written.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? My only quibble I have is that the pattern instructions call for you to press the front bodice seam (the one right over the bust point) towards the centre, rather than clipping the curves and pressing the seam flat open. I did this against my better judgement, and now regret it, as the seam doesn't sit as flat as it should. Darn it!
Fabric Used: Quilting cotton.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Apart from ironing my bodice seam flat, none.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes - it makes a very cute dress, and was easy to sew.
Conclusion: I'm pretty happy with my pink'n'red scribble dress - you can read more about it on my blog, Jorth! or on my new website, Handmaker's Factory
