Pattern Description: formal gown, close fitting bodice, bias skirt, bow with tails at the neck.
Pattern Sizing: 8
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 tails for the bow required interfacing. They were oversized and I would have needed to piece the interfacing together, which I disliked.So since there are limited options for wide width interfacing, I just used netting instead of interfacing.
Fabric Used: crepe backed satin
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes and yes
Conclusion: The pattern went together very easily. I would recommend stabilizing the bias seams on the skirt. I cut two strips of fusible tricot the length of the skirt at the side seams to ensure that I didn't stretch the seam as I was sewing it.
