|Pattern Description: |
Misses' pullover dress, top or tunic, has front band with straps or yokes, is long-sleeved or sleeveless with optional sash.
I made dress D and sash of tunic C. The dress has shoulder straps, front and back bands.
I cut size 12 and flared slightly the dress below the hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, with contrasting straps, front/back bands, hem band and sash.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the self-lined and interfaced front/back bands.
I like the wide shoulder straps and the front gathers.
Two Way Stretch Knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I sewed the shoulder straps in size 12, the bodice sides in size 8, the rest of the pattern in 10.
I graded out to 14, from hips to hemline, for a more A-line.
I lengthened the dress by 2 3/4" by adding a hem band made in a contrast fabric.
The straps, the front/back bands and the sash were also sewn in this same fabric.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I might sew this pattern again and I would recommend it to others. It was easy to alter and fast to sew. I have already made dress A, the version with yoke back and yoke front. It will be the subject of my next review.
Very nice dress, very simple to make and very easy to wear. I love it!
