Pattern Sizing: My pattern was a size 10, 28 1/2 chest for girls
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes it did
Were the instructions easy to follow? Vintage patterns rock because they are so detailed and explain things so wonderfully in the instructions. They do not disappoint. I really haven't had a head scratching moment when sewing a vintage pattern... not like when I sew current ones.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? love that it looks like a 60s/70s dress. I love the pattern instructions. I love that this dress has darts, for a girl! There are front darts and back neck darts.
Fabric Used: A quilters cotton I picked up long ago at hancocks, Sept 15th 2012. "Gypsy song" green floral - on sale for $1.79 a yard! This dress used almost the whole 2 yards. So the dress cost less than $5 with zipper and contrasting fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I went with contrasting fabric for the collar and pockets. I don't like to hand sew - so slip stitching is not what I like to do. I used very lightweight stay tape to keep the suckers down. shh.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew it again but it is one of those patterns unique enough that you only need one in the closet.
Conclusion: This took me 3 hours to sew and I had a blast the entire time. The fit is wonderful and I love the outcome.
