This is a fitted bodice with princess seams and a tulip shape skirt. Creating an exaggerated feminine silhouette! Pattern Sizing:
UK and US
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did, the fabric does need a bit of volume to hold the tulip skirt shape.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes lots of illustrations
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the princess seams even though they were fiddly. The skirt I love but I did not like the length so cut around 15 cms off. Fabric Used:
a heavy cotton ginham Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not line the bodice as this was a muslin but love it
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I already have 2 more times. :P
A great pattern and very versatile dress. Dont be put off by the intermediate notice. There is a great sewalong online too on the pattern companys website.
