Misses’ retro style dress with front, sleeve and neck variations.
Misses sizes 4-16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yse they were.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that it fit right out of the pattern (more or less) after my usual FBA and Sway Back adjustment. I usually cut a size 12 and sometimes have to add extra to the side seams ,but for this pattern, I didn't need it.
I used a stretch polyester lace.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As mentioned above. I should say that the fabrics suggested were wovens and I used a stable knit so it might have had something to do with the fit without extra at the side seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I've made this three more times.
It's become one of my favorite TNT's.
If you want a great pattern for a sheath dress, try this one. It's great.
