|Pattern Description: |
I recreated the famous Kate Middleton Yellow dress!
I used size 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it really did
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were a bit unclear in places, but then I am pretty much a beginner
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The waistllne was a bit too short, I lengthened a bit
Polyester crepe from Joanns on sale!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added 1/2 " to the waistline, and I brought the shoulder seams in a bit as I am narrow in the shoulders
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would sew it again, I recommend this pattern, you have to go slow and carefully to make the pleats and tucks right, and the collar was a bit tricky
The end result was so worth all the effort. I didnt make a muslin, but measured everything carefully, comparing measurements to a shirtdress I have that fits really well.
I am very proud of this dress, it turned out beautiful!
