Lined fitted bodice with a gathered skirt and pockets. Pattern Sizing:
I cut out a size 12. It comes in 8-22. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, very much so. Were the instructions easy to follow?
Great easy pattern to follow What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like the high square neckline. Nothing to dislike! Fabric Used:
I used stretch cotton for the bodice and skirt. I chose a cotton with a border print for the skirt. Easy to work with when you are making a gathered skirt as its ultimately just a rectangle of fabric. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Just added about an inch to the length, otherwise kept everything the same. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew this again and try an evening style with a lace sequin fabric for the skirt or maybe for the bodice, haven't decided yet! This is a great dress pattern for someone venturing in to dresses for the first time and has lots of opportunities for different fabrics. Conclusion:
Really happy with the outcome and a great dress style to wear to the office.
