|Pattern Description: Pastille sheath dress |
My version is a pastille / macaron mash up
Pattern Sizing: 16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes but I made some mods
Were the instructions easy to follow? yes very comprehensive
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? love the neckline - don't like the sleeve facings
Fabric Used: Camouflage Cotton Twill
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I was worried the shape of the skirt would emphasise my tummy, so decided to sub in my favourite dress skirt - macaron, I love both the shape and the fact it has pockets - win win!! I had to shorten bodice to fit the waist band.
After I finished I also reduced the shoulder caps - nothing wrong with the design just entirely due to my fabric being a bit stiff and making the caps stick out.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes
Beautiful, informative and comprehensive book - i love it!
Lovely dress shape and well drafted pattern. I am tempted to try a full Pastille as I love the skirt detailing at the bottom, still have concerns the skirt would emphasise my tummy but that's what hold in pants are for!
What would I change? I would eliminate the sleeve facings - just not a fan.
