|Pattern Description: |
Lined dress has fitted bodice variations, midriff, tapered or flared skirt and back zipper. C and E: side front and side back seams, and side pockets. A, B, D and F: semi-fitted skirt and back slit. D, E and F: bias front bodice with fold-back facing.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is my second time making this pattern. I like the cowl necked bodice.
Soft, drapey, floral viscose.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The skirt is actually from Simplicity 1699. I did not have the heart/ nor the fabric to cut the 7 pannelled skirt from this pattern. I used an invisible zipper. I omitted the in-seam pockets. I fully lined the dress using a pongee lining. I also cut a wedge of about 1 1/2 inches off from the bottom of the centre back of the bodice, tapering down to 1/4 inch at the side front. This way the midriff (which is cut from a piece of black eyelet fabric underlined in lilac linen mix fabric) doesn't dip down as it did in my earlier version, but sits straight. I pinched out some fabric from the front armhole to get a better fit there.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Probably not this version again no. But, yes, I would recommend.
Light and airy summer dress for my forthcoming summer holiday. More pics on my blog.
