Loose fitting pull over drop waist dress with layered skirt and wrap over bodice. Gathered at shoulders with fabric belt. Pattern Sizing:
Available in sizes 6 - 22 and I cut out a 10 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think it 'largely' looked the same, but the image on the pattern suggests its a bit more fitted around the waist than what I thought it was. Were the instructions easy to follow?
Instructions very easy to follow and quick to get through thanks to hardly any fitting or zip insertion. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the layered skirt bottom and cross over bodice. I dont like how big it is around the waist but maybe thats a fit issue and next time I would cut a smaller size. I suggest if you do make it, make it a size down. Fabric Used:
A polyester georgette fabric picked up from Spotlight Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No alterations Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I've sewn this up twice now - one for me and one for a friend. So I think it will live in the pattern storage cupboard for quite some time! Conclusion:
I am happy with the outcome and the work I put into it but I'm not sold on the style. It is a great beginners dress if this is a style you like.
