|Pattern Description: misses dress|
Pattern Sizing: I made a 14
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. There does appear to be an error where the notches are marked on the hem bands. And, although there are two seperate center front pattern pieces (for zipped or buttoned versions) supplied, they are the same. I did not think there was enough of an overlap if you were going to use buttons and the front looked odd overlapped, so I used a zipper.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that its a bit quirky, but after making it I can see its really not my style. I think it's more suited to the small on top, bigger on the bottom figure type.
Fabric Used: Cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Surprisingly, this fit pretty well straight out of the envelope. I did do a slight slope shoulder adjustment and a FBA--the FBA was needed more for lenghth than for width. Even so, the back ended up quite a bit longer than the front. (I evened it up before I attached the lower bands) Realizing how much volumn this dress had on the bottom, I took out the fronts pleats.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It is a pefectly nice dress, and it went together easily. I do recommend it, but I don't think I'd make it again.
Conclusion: Okay dress, just not very flattering on my figure.
