|Pattern Description: Sleeveless knit dress with color blocking|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Mostly. I would not have thought that the dress had as much fullness in the skirt.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, but I mostly did this one without them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love the color blocking. This dress was just to test the pattern. My daughter thought it would be more figure forming. She is mediocre on this dress because of that. If I was making it for me, I would like the fullness of this pattern. It is a rare day that I wear a dress or skirt, so I doubt I would make it again.
The pattern is well drafted and it fits her just fine. I just thought it would be good to put this in the database of patterns.
Fabric Used:Cotton lycra knit from Fabrique and Fabric Fairy.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I took in the side seams from the bottom to the waist 1 inch.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend this if you like the silhouette.
Fun little dress.
