|Pattern Description: |
Long or short dress with diagonal panels.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I loved the striped look and have seen similar striped dresses in stores always with a black stripe. I look dreadful in black so was excited to find a pattern so I could choose my own colors.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. Because my fabric was solid color I did make one mistake of sewing a seam on the wrong side. Totally my fault as I have a hard time figuring out which is the right or wrong side.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love how it looks. Love how it is a maxi dress with a nice A-line design rather than straight. I have very limited knit experience and it came out great. All my points and seams matched up which was awesome as I am not very precise and usually have a hard time lining up all seams.
Knit. I don't know what kind.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I rarely make any pattern twice. A statement dress isn't much of a statement if you have multiples.
I love how the dress came out. Love the style and the colors. The pattern was very easy to follow with clear instructions. If using solids make sure to mark which piece is which and which is the right and wrong side.
