|Pattern Description: Very Easy, flared pullover dress with curved seam detailing|
Pattern Sizing: Cut the 16, which was a little too big. Next time I will cut the 14 for a closer fit.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I changed the sleeves and lowered the neckline, but the curving seams looked just like the drawing on the envelop.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were fine, but I had to post here for advice on how to fit the side front pieces to the front. ArtAttack told me to stretch the side front panel to fit the front, which worked like a charm. Thank you for your wise words, ArtAttack!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love this pattern! Very easy to make and wear, very flattering. Finished the new sleeves yesterday morning, and wore it to a beautiful 90th Birthday Party at the Bel Air Hotel yesterday afternoon, where my hubby snapped my project photo
Fabric Used: poly-lycra knit print from Gorgeous Fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the cap sleeve, as in View A, which I didn't like on my flabby arms. (Cap sleeve version above.)
So I cut a 3/4 length sleeve from Vogue 8817, which worked out perfectly.
I didn't like the neckline, so I lowered it into a sort of scoop. Next time going to lower it even more, or maybe try a V or boat neck. I took in the side front seams between bust and hip about 3/4".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? , Yes and yes. I made one for my daughter too!
Conclusion: This is going to be the second TNT for my sewing files.
