|Pattern Description: |
Misses' sleeveless or cap-sleeved shift dress with trim variations and tote bag.
Sizes 10-22 (I made 16, should've made 14)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Fairly similar until I belted it...
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, fairly clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the easy style, the variations, and how quick it was. I also liked the fact that it had darts and a zipper, forcing me to face my fears of trying Basic Skills I Should Know By Now.
Disliked: the sizing issue. I should know better but I once again made the bodice on this one way too big. I need to go down at least one size on the next try. I am continually frustrated by my inability to choose the correct bodice size -- practice makes perfect, I guess.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added in seam pockets, which I like to do whenever possible. I also tried setting the sleeves in flat, which I loved and would try again.
Also, because I made this so unfortunately big, the bright side was that I didn't have to put in the zipper...
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm going to try it again and beat my sizing gremlin!
Although I was annoyed by my own issues with figuring out my sizing, the pattern itself is clear, easy, and has lots of potential.
