Pattern Description:
Empire waist dress

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, very
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Beautiful shape and fit
Fabric Used:
Cotton voile
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made elbow-length sleeves so I could wear the dress in the fall. Instead of using the original pattern for the bottom of the sleeves, I just turned them over and inserted elastic.
And when I finished the bodice I found the cut a little low for my work environment so I decided to add lace edging to the neck line. To make the design consistent, I accessorized the hem with black lace edging as well.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Definitely. Yes
Great design and pattern which I would love to make again. And it's free. What else can one ask for?!
Have you fallen under Danielle's spell too?
