|Pattern Description: |
I cut a size 10, because that was the starting size in the envelope I had. But I should have cut an 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I made view A.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. I used the center seam installation method for the zipper instead of the pattern instructions. I also set the sleeves in flat.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It is a pattern that you could use to learn how to make two kinds of darts, and a zipper and the dress is not a complicated look. Perfect for beginners.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Shortened it by 3 inches as usual. And did not do the facings. I finished the neckline with bias tape.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. With a few alterations this could become my TNT pattern, because I love the simple style and comfort fit.
I am planning to take it in a half inch on the sides. Maybe then I will need the zipper. Otherwise the neckline is wide enough for my head to go through!
