Pattern Description: 6144 Misses' Dress and Belt New Look Pattern
Pattern Sizing; 8-18 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? The instructions were very easy to follow. Got a little mixed up with the contrasting shoulder bits. ended up putting the wrong edges together. only realised when I came to the put the shoulders together that I was missing some notches... soon found them on the other side.. (lol). But it only took me a total of 3 hrs to do. I've only been sewing for 4 month, so to someone else it prob wont take as long.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? the patter pieces. The other dressed have 4 peices that make up the bodice and then the skirt is made up of several parts. However, this one has One piece for the front of the dress, and two parts for the back. This made working with the stripes perfect as there was less matching to do.
Fabric Used: I have no idea what this fabric is. its stretchy ish, slightly thick.. um... i just liked the print if Im honest.. lol
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthend the dress by about 5 inches. however, the end dress no longer ends with flowers as per the pic, but now ends higher up where the striped are. The fit was PERFECT. i usually have issues with this whole "ease" thing. I cut per my size and end up with a dress that a good 2 sizes too big, but this one was perfect.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Most def. this was a really quick one that I made one afternoon. loved it
Conclusion: Go, get the pattern, and give it a go.
