1948 Halter sundress with wrap skirt. Long halter ties cross in back to form belt. Flared skirt Pattern Sizing:
I cut out the size A that correlates to a 34 inch bust. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think it did look similar except mine looked like the halterneck sat higher up on my chest like there was too much fabric. Were the instructions easy to follow?
I find the instructions on these patterns aren't as clear as other patterns I have used before so you will have to rely a little in instinct and experience as to how you piece it together. In saying that, this is one of their easier patterns. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the wrap style of the dress but I didn't like how it overlapped at the back and didn't feel all that secure. Especially with a gust of wind! Fabric Used:
I used a vintage 1940's reproduction fabric I found in Spotlight. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I only changed this by making the length a bit shorter and I added rickrack to the skirt bottom, pocket, and bodice. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I wont sew this again as I didn't love the style and it's not something I'd want another of. I would recommend to others, but perhaps someone who has more of a bust and can fill it out more! Conclusion:
Overall relatively happy with it and it met the Fall for Cotton sewing challenge that I made it for. More pictures on my blog: Click Here
