|Pattern Description: |
Very loose-fitting, pullover dress has princess seams, self-lined yoke back, side openings for self belt, back pleats/ neck slit with button/thread loop closing, and shaped hemline
This was a size 14 top eased out to 16 bottom
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The dress suits a wide variety of body types and can be dressed up for work or down for casual wear. Fitting the yoke took a little time but it wasn't difficult.
A linen-cotton blend on sale at Joanne's
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I color blocked the yoke for added interest in a lighter weight fabric
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes - I would make in a lighter linen for a more casual look
This is a versatile pattern that is easy to construct and is flattering to wide range of people and situations
