|Pattern Description: |
Classic shirt dress with short sleves, lapel collar, and curved wrap around hip pockets
Pattern Sizing:36-44, I made a 40
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very similar
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use them, but Dilly noted in her review that they could be improved
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the classic shirt dress styling and the shaped hip patch pockets. No dislikes.
Lightweight Ikea curtaining cotton. The lobsters, scrimps, pineapples, bananas, cherries, strawberries, cocktails, olives and flowers were irresistible!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
FBA for fit.
No interfacing. I like the soft finish that interlining with self fabric or cotton gives, so that’s what I used here for the collar and neck band.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, and yes. I'm likely to make one for me ( this is my daughters..)
This is a great classic style and the fabric is so much fun. Gotta love Ikea!
