|Pattern Description: |
Close-fitting, low neckline bodice and cap sleeves, gathered in front of upper bodice, darted at waistline, flared skirt with release pleats at waistline seam, below mid-calf length and front buttoned closure.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much so, although I have on a lighter weight petticoat
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Honestly, I did not follow the instructions. These are vintage instructions and I did not put in the bound buttonholes nor did I do the vintage finishes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love everything about it although the bottom of the front button placket where it meets the skirt front seam is a bit tricky. I'm sure it's not if you follow the directions though!
Red/white/blue cotton seersucker
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not put in facings and instead lined the bodice. I did not do bound buttonholes. I made a self fabric belt. I also added little darts on the interior sleeve so that it would lay down on my shoulders better.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Most definitely! It's a very comfortable dress, very feminine and fun to wear.
I love my dress! It combines many things that I have been wanting like seersucker, a patriotic print and gingham (or is it a check?). The pleats are flattering and it does not add bulk like a gathered skirt can. This is a great pattern!
