Pattern Description: Pullover dress has fitted, mock wrap bodice, shoulder ties, elasticized shoulders and raised (seamed) waist, fitted, narrow hem, thread carriers and self belt.
Pattern Sizing: I would say it runs a little big. I cut a size 10 when I usually cut a 12 (measurements would put me at 14) and I wouldn't say it was tight, especially in the bodice. Definitely check the finished measurements or it could easily come out billowy on top - which is a problem because it is rather low cut)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Shorter, but yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super, crazy easy dress to make.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved everything!
As other people have said, it is very low cut, but this could probably be fixed by overlapping the two sides more. I had to do that to the back of the dress A LOT because it was gaping quite a bit - I think this was caused by the ties on the shoulders pulling the shoulder-line back.
-I also didn't have a problem turning the ties like some people have, but I also have a gadget for that (Skinny Loop Turner by Dritz. $5, but seriously, a priceless tool for a sewer)
Fabric Used: Soft jersey from Joann's
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- I made the skirt shorter but kept the same bottom width.
- I had to close the back so it wouldn't gape and show my bra strap.
- Left out the loops for the belt. Totally unnecessary.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? In a second! And I would definitely sew it again.
So cute and versatile! I would make one in every colour and then patterns! Could be dressed up or down. Great little pattern.
