|Pattern Description: |
Pattern sizing was incredibly off...I could have made at least 1 size smaller if not 2 :-/. I ended up taking in the side seams at least an inch on both sides but sadly was unable to alter the neck area & back zip to a smaller size.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Some parts were however I felt sometimes as if I was left on an ellipse as certain parts of the construction were completely skipped. Overall it's a pretty easy pattern tho so it worked out in the end.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the versatility! Even beyond the options given you can use this pattern as parts to make your own creations
I used a nice spring cotton. I think it would be considered lawn or broadcloth cotton.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As mentioned I had to take in the finished dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will make this again but will be sure to use a smaller size next time I would recommend it but would strongly advise you to double check the pattern pieces to your actual measurements. If I had done that I would have gone for the smaller size
Although it came out rather large I'm quite pleased with the results & plan to make another one. It's a very comfortable dress, especially for summer!
