Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Not exactly, because I changed the shape of the lapels.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the detailed fitting instructions.
Silk/cotton shirting, polyester pongee for lining, black silk haboti and black lace
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I widened the lapels, and covered them with black lace. I omitted much of the topstitching. I added a lining (to help the shirting retain it’s shape, especially in the seat area), black lace on the rolled cuffs, and two black silk covered buttons at the edge of the lapels.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I’d make this again. I like the cut and fit. The instructions were easy to follow and the pieces went together smoothly.
Yes I recommend this pattern.
I enjoyed making this dress and it’s quite comfortable to wear. The extensive fitting instructions are a nice bonus. The multiple lengths and sleeve options give this pattern lots of versatility.
