|Pattern Description: dress. This is my third attempt. I think I got it as close as I could to what it's supposed to look like, but it just doesn't work for me.|
Pattern Sizing:regular. I sewed a large.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? More or less?
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Easy. If it looked good on me I would make it over and over.
Fabric Used:some ITY jersey from my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:FBA to a DD. Lowered the neckline 1 1/2 ". This was my third attempt. On the first, I left the bodice seam where it was, and it was too high. On my second I lowered it 4 inches and it was too low. This time I lowered it 2 3/4", and narrowed the waistline - I had added 3" in the FBA, and carved that off again from the side seams at the waist. It fits well now.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend it to people who don't have as large a cup size as mine. I was trying it because I keep thinking that an empire dress style would suit me, if I could just make one to fit me.. I think I'm coming to the conclusion that it doesn't really. That said, I liked this version of the dress pretty well; but my daughter and fashion guru says that while it is not bad, and certainly the best of the 3 versions I have sewn, there are many styles that are more flattering to me; princess line for instance. I think she's right about that.
Conclusion: Good for a younger women with C or smaller cup size.
