|Pattern Description: Misses Dress- Close-fitting, in two lengths with overlapping front pleats.|
Pattern Sizing: Sizes 6-20 featuring Custom Fit with different pattern pieces for A, B, C, D cup sizes.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, although I did not follow them exactly.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Quick sew, very flattering, and love the different bodice front pattern pieces for each cup size. Wish all of the patterns from the Big 4 included this feature. Love the overlapping pleats.
Fabric Used: Brown ITY knit, lightweight with a beautiful drape. At first I thought it was going to be too thin but it is a lovely flowing fabric very suitable for this pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Cut out size 20, used C-cup pattern piece and graded up one size at the hips blending back to the size 20 at the waist. Added 1 inch to center front tapering back to the neckline at the shoulder, and added 1/2 inch to raise the underarm after reading other reviews about the low cut neckline and low armholes. Also did a 3/4 inch swayback adjustment. Bound neckline and armholes which also helped with the low neckline and armholes. Used coverstitch machine to hem dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes.
This pattern is definitely a very easy Vogue pattern. Take your time when making the front pleats and be sure to transfer all pattern markings for the pleats. Also helps to use a lightweight knit because there are several layers at the center front due to the overlapping pleats and bodice.
