Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? It really did, I am built a little different than the model though LOL
Were the instructions easy to follow? I did not really follow the directions, Unless I just can't understand the pieces I do my own thing.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit of this dress, I did not have to do many alterations the design was simple yet looked complicated
Fabric Used:I used a linen fabric from Fabricmart.com my favorite supplier.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added three inches to the length, made a FBA adjustment (this was a little difficult because of the pattern pieces, I had to do a combination of a normal adjustment and one for a princess seam.) Surprisingly, it worked first time. I also had to take an inch out of the back at the waist. I did it as a fish eye dart made on pants for a flat seat adjustment. I think this is something I should always have done this kind of an adjustment and didn't see it until this dress. I added a 1/4" to the arm scythe front and back
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this pattern many times, it is easy to sew up and very comfortable little summer dress
Conclusion: I started smocking this fabric by hand back in May, Inspired by an Article in "Threads" July 2013 Issue. The article talked about doing the smocking on gingham to keep the stitches straight. smocking close up So first I did the smocking and then started looking for a pattern to make the dress out of. Once I decided on the pattern I made a muslin out of a cotton blue plaid muslin It looked so good I decided to wear it too. It was a free fabric bundle from Fabricmart.com. I just love Fabricmart what a great way to get muslin fabric and items I would never have bought myself. blueplaidmuslin" target="_blank">back
