Pattern Description:
Princess seamed, fit and flared scoop neckline dress in two lengths, has back zipper and back tie ends, is long sleeved or sleeveless, with optional side front hemline slit.
I made view A, the sleeveless dress.

Pattern Sizing:
I cut size 10, grading out to 14 from the waist to the hips.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, both dresses look like the picture on the pattern envelope, but I made them without an opening slit at the side front lower edge. Dress #2 has waistline details.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were well illustrated.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how simple and easy both dresses were sewn up. However, to allow hem to drop, they needed to be hanged overnight before being hemmed.

Fabric Used:
Rayon Challis.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not sew in my usual 12. I made the dresses in size 10, with hips being 14.
Both dresses have been shortened at hemline by 8", and ties were sewn to the back 1" higher (Petite adjustment).
I omitted the side front opening slit, but added crossed bias loops to the front of Dress #2. Click Here
For a good fit, both dresses have the underarm seams narrowed by 3/8" (for a total of 3/4" on each side).

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others
I have sewn these sleeveless dresses a while ago to wear during spring and summer. I do not plan on making more of this view in the next few months, but I would recommend this 1994 pattern to others.
I have already made the version with long contrasting sleeves. A review will be written as soon as I have pictures made.

Easy to sew princess seamed dresses.
