Misses’ Dress in two lengths, jacket and tie belt by Cynthia Rowley
I cut size 12, 1 size down from my measurements
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yup, pretty much! Check it out
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Pretty much. They are decently complicated pattern pieces, but I don't remember being totally stumped by the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The bodice didn't go together very well, as I found out only after I finished the pattern and read reviews on it. Even with that, it came out all right! I'm thinking maybe the short inner-bodice piece is on purpose? It adds some extra folds/pleats to the outer-bodice, looks like they belong
Some of that sari fabric from Joann's that has been in my stash FOREVER. I changed up the placing of the pattern pieces to fit the border print on the fabric. This dress works very well for a border print, especially on the skirt! The fabric was hard to work with though, frayed SO badly and stretched oddly. Glad it worked out in the end!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't re-use patterns very often, but I would recommend it to intermediate sewers looking for something unique. And I'll probably go back and make the jacket if I find some ideal fabric.
Good for intermediate sewers. Fun and comfortable little sun dress. Don't worry about the shorter bodice shell, it is made that way.
