|Pattern Description: |
Dress with pockets and decorative buttons and epaulettes.
Custom sized using the extended options available on the Russian site.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
It is a very easy dress, so I did not look at them, knowing that they are Google-translated from Russian.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a very cute dress, easy to make. No dislikes.
General comments about sewing with Lekala here.
A novelty chiffon with appliqued tartan rags. I doubled up the fabric with a very lightweight lining, for modesty. I think you will get good results from this pattern with a wide range of fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As my fabric is so busy, I omitted the decorative elements. The sleeves do have a slight pagoda shape without the epaulettes.
I added a sway back adjustment.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I highly recommend this pattern and will definitely be making it again.
A good pattern to start with if you are new to Lekala.
