Pattern Description: Three pattern pieces, darted in front and back, with back waist and shoulder seams. Back wraps around to the front for a sheath-and-overskirt look. A: contrast back and skirt. Bias tape finished edges.
Pattern Sizing:8-22. I made size 12, but because I´ve read all the previous reviews, I measure the pattern on the paper before cutting the size. So glad I did. You don´t have the comfort of the seam allowances to play with in this one as it is finished with bias binding
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yeeees! Very happy about that!
Were the instructions easy to follow?Really easy. The most difficult part for me was hemming the circle skirt, and for that the instructions were very good.
I liked very much finishing the edges with bias binding... once I got the knack of it!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like everything! Love the design. Everything about this dress is so feminine. And I was wanting to make a circle skirt since forever!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Yes. I added a little pocket at hip level on the seath part of the dress, to carry the keys or coins
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I do recommend it but I doubt I´d sew it again for myself.
Conclusion: I´m very happy with this dress. It is vintage, and maybe not my every day style, but makes me feel very lady-like and feminine.
