|Pattern Description: |
Pattern Sizing:I made a straight 12. Normally I make a 12 up top and 16 on the bottom, but the gathered waist and incorporated fullness meant that I did not need to do this.
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
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Casual dress. Quick to pull on, elastic waist, so great for summer, when you need to dash out the door, or might be going swimming, or need to do lots of jobs and don't want to be restricted by a fitted dress.
Fabric Used:A rayon woven for the main, cotton batiste for the lining, rayon knit for the contrast sleeves.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
* Most importantly, I did not shorten the bodice, which I usually do with Vogue. I think the pattern bodice is very short.
* I lengthened the skirt by an inch
* I folded out 2 of the front bodice pleats before cutting, to minimise some of the volume.
* I used the back lining + facing instead of the back bodice, to minimise some of the volume at the back
* I didn't line the skirt
* I made a SBA
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I may sew it again. I would check the bodice length before I recommended making it up. It needs a very fine fabric if you are going to include all the fullness of the pattern.
Conclusion: Not high fashion, but good for summer.
