|Pattern Description: Keyhole-Back Dress|
Pattern Sizing: Misses
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, will note alternative
finishing on keyhole for next time.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Easy and cute once you have your bodice fit down.
Fabric Used: Cotton knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I had a small piece of knit, so used it for just a casual Top. Left out the Keyhole to try the pattern, so you can cut as a regular top, just lay the back on the fold minus the 5/8".
Like others mentioned, did not need the elastic as it's not a real full gather and not maternity-looking full, you can taper bodice a little more at the waist before adding skirt.
Added the 3" to bodice for Tall, I think * everyone would have to add length to it! Be sure to ADD to front armhole with no dart, especially at the little arrow, for a fuller bust. My first cut pulled too wide there, but I had enough to cut another front. I used self-bias on arms and neckline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, will make the keyhole dress for something dressier.
