Pattern Description: From the pattern: Close fitting. I would add "dress in two lenghts. Sleeveless or with cap sleeve.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like how super easy it was to sew. I also like the fit. It is close fitting without feeling like a sausage.
I did not like how they sewed the binding around the armscye (more on that in my alterations)
Fabric Used: Ponte knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- Added 2" to the length.
- I changed how the armscye binding is sewn. Burda has you sew the binding and then sew up the sides. I don't like the way that looks under the arm. I prefer to sew up then sides and then sew the binding around the armscye. I think this makes for a much nicer finish but that's just my preference.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would like to sew a color blocked solid version but I have so many patterns in my queue I don't see this happening for a while. I would recommend this pattern to others.
Conclusion: I love my knit dress. It will be a versatile dress for me this summer.
