Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. this was the second time of using this pattern so I could whizz through.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes apart from no lining. Like the close fitting shape with yoke and midriff.
Fabric Used: Red stretch denim. I had already sewn this dress in a fairly structured fabric so felt that this stretch denim, whilst rather heavier than the suggested stretch knit would still work.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Open seams rather than double stitched seams. Topstitched with twin needle and ordinary thread.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is the second time I have made it but I would sew it again in a softer knit fabric. It could also be lined with suitable knit lining if necessary and with a softer more stretch material could possibly omit the zipper.
Conclusion: Versatile pattern.
