|Pattern Description: Flattering dress|
Pattern Sizing:according to the pattern sizing, choose a size larger as it is very snug, even using a fabric with some stretch
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?yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?the rose embellishment at the hip is cut in one piece with the front, so when turned to front, the wrong side of the fabric is showing. Also, it creates a lot of bulk at the seam. Next time, yes I am going to make it again, I will delete the rose extension peice and make thr rose separately and sew on. Lastly, the shorter version is short. I am 5'2in and the dress finished above the knee and I still had the hem to do!
Fabric Used:Pontiac knit with not a lot of stretch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:none this time. If I was to make it in a non stretch fabric, as the pattern does recommend this, I would make a size larger as it is a small fit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?yes and yes. I made a winter version, but it would make a lovely summer dress also.
great pattern and flattering
