|Pattern Description: |
MISSES'UNLINED JACKETS AND DRESSES: Close-fitting, unlined jacket in 2 lengths has front extending into single-layer tie ends(wrong side shows). Very close-fitting, pullover dresses. E and F: front seam detail, bias upper/middle fronts, and lower front/back (cut on crosswise grain of fabric. All have narrow hems.
Designed for lightweight soft woven fabrics and knits.
A5(6-8-10-12-14),E5(14-16-18-20-22) I'm a RTW 8, so I debated between the 12 and 14, and ultimately chose the 12. I'm very happy with my choice. I cut an 8 in the shoulders since I'm short-shouldered. They came out a little too short, so I'll cut a 10 there next time.
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?
I have wanted to make this dress since I saw Amanda's great version of it last year. I am semi-obsessed with maxis since my legs are so pasty white.
Some sort of mystery jersey from Joann's red tag section. The gray parts feel like cotton jersey, but the teal parts are nylon or rayon. I'll be handwashing it since it's a mystery.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added a lining since the fabric is so sheer. I just bought a XXL men's t-shirt from the Kohl's clearance rack and cut it to fit my pattern pieces. Then followed this tutorial to attach it to the armholes and neckline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely sew it again. LOVE it.
Conclusion: This is a great pattern and works for just about every body type. Looking at my pictures, I guess it's time to learn how to do a swayback adjustment!
