|Pattern Description: |
Misses' Dress and belt. Loose-fitting dress.
8-14. I cut the size 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The directions were very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern has been reviewed many times. I am finally (finally!) getting a review here at PR. I feel like a stalker, as I check the reviews every day. I was beginning to feel very guilty that I was not contributing anything - so I hereby agree to review as many patterns as I can. So, I start with a very easy, fun dress for summer. Don't you just love a dress with pockets??
The pleats at the neckline were easy as well. Here is a detail of the pleats.
This is a quilting cotton from Joanne's. It has butterflies all over it - I love butterflies!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut the dress at a 14, increasing to a 16 at the bust area, in order to avoid doing a FBA. I did not make the belt, as I did not have enough fabric. I will be wearing a leather belt with the dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't know if I'd sew it again - it places a little too much emphasis on my full bust. Perhaps if I were to select a softer fabric I may sew it again. But there are so many dress patterns out there to be sewn!
This is a fun, easy summer dress that I would recommend to anyone. A very enjoyable sew - and I've received several complements on the dress as well.
