|Pattern Description: Laura Ashley Dress|
Pattern Sizing: 8-22 with choice of A to D bust cup size
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? To some extent
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes for the most part but as mentioned by others before, step 13 to attach lining to dress does not work!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love the bust cup choice, like the style
Fabric Used: A very nice cotton, white background and delicate flowers print in blue, navy, light aqua.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Still had to do an FBA
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would not recommend it because of this confusion with the lining insertion, particularly if you decide to have the version with sleeves (that is if you are lining the dress, which I had to do with my choice of fabric). Could be a very nice pattern and fairly quick to make otherwise.
Conclusion: May be a nice pattern for some, if not lined. Also, I found it not particularly flattering for myself. I guess I am too busty for this pattern and the sleeves (which I find too long) are not flattering. This is not going into my closet. Unfortunately, wasted precious few hours I have to sew.
