|Pattern Description: |
Four enchanting summer dresses with slightly flared skirts. View A with tie-band shoulder straps and small hem flounce. View B with ribbons and bow on the section seam. View C with gathered bodice and drawstring casing. View D with short sleeves and elastic drawstring casing.
I made view B but omitted the ribbon and bow.
34 to 46 (8 to 20).
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a really nice, well drafted pattern and with the 4 different views you could get a lot of use out of it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I have a rectangular body shape with a small bust and large ribcage so I spent quite a while trying to get a good fit on the bodice. I tapered from a 36 at the top of the bodice to a 38 at the bottom and it fits well at the top but it's still a little tight at the bottom around my ribcage. I'll definitely make this again so I'll tweak the fit a little more. I'm also short waisted so I took 2.5cm off the length at the waist.
As the lawn I used was quite transparent I lined the skirt. The only other change I made was to widen the straps a little.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely recommend this pattern. I'll certainly make view B again and I'll be making views C and D soon.
Apart from the fitting issues I had because of my body shape it's a really quick and easy dress to make and the dress has a very flattering shape.
