|Pattern Description: |
Fitted dress, has princess seams, back zipper, flared skirt with inverted pleats at sides, side front and side back. Inside yoke extends above neckline. Lower calf length. B: contrast yoke and three-quarter length sleeves.
Just as written on pattern.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
All except for the pleats. This was the second time I have made this dress and I finally understood. Although, I am not used to sewing pleats at all, so it my inexperience may have been the real issue. The yoke and facing go together unlike any dress I have ever sewn. Still, the instructions are good for that part.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love this pattern. It is very flattering for a pear shape.
I am not entirely sure... I think it was some kind of rayon. It didn't have a lot of stretch to it, but some. It was on sale for $1.00 a yard, so I snapped it up out of the bargain bin and didn't ask too many questions about it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I left off the sleeves and made bias binding to put around the armholes instead.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is my second time sewing this dress. I love it! It is very figure flattering.
The first time I sewed it, I didn't put in the pleats. This time, I did. I am not sure which version I like better. No pleats make it more flowy but this makes it more structured.
