|Pattern Description: |
Pullover dress with optional peter pan collar and a choice of: flutter, 3/4 length or long sleeves.
8-18 I used a size 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, even though I tend to make everything seem like you need a Harvard degree to work with it.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think it's a great beginner pattern. There are no zippers involved, which relieves some stress. I'm not at that level yet. I'm a slow sewer so this pattern still took me a long time to make (made a toile version first), but that's my issue and has nothing to do with the pattern.
I used a generic woven silk like fabric from Joann's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The only changes I made were making the seam allowance on the side seam 5/8 instead of 3/8. That was pretty much a mistake, LOL. I'm just used to working with 5/8 seam allowance. I also added 2 inches to the length, which still wasn't not long enough for me. The dress is quite short. The hem came between the top and middle of my knee. When I sat down of course, it was even shorter, yikes.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I thought it came out great. There are some wonky bits like the hem, but the more I practice the better it will be. I am working on another one as we speak. I am working with Style E with the long sleeve verision and w/out the collar and I'm making it floor length. Whew, deep breaths.
