Dress in two lengths with sleeve and contrast variations has side seam pockets
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I've made the pattern before so I'd like to say yes...but I nevertheless still had problems with the collar construction and had to use some extra tutorials for help to remember.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love the fit, the collar, the many sleeve options that come with the pattern making it so versatile.
I used a chambray from Fabric.com and some red buttons.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Shortened the bodice by 1/2" and left out the interfacing since this fabric was much stiffer than the last version I made (cotton swiss dot). I like this pattern in a stiffer fabric, it gives the skirt some nice body.
I had problem setting in the eased sleeves, so I just gathered at the sleeve cap.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and Yes! This is already my second version of this dress!
Comfortable, flattering, versatile, and well-drafted pattern. More pictures on my blog!
