Pattern Sizing: To fit my 24y/o DD. Approx size 10 (?)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? No pattern used, so I compare to the original on Zoe Sladana. Close enough to pass at a Halloween Party is my opinion. The Silver Badge was bought on Amazon for $10, and really, any red dress with THAT badge will do the trick !!
Were the instructions easy to follow? No instructions, but it's a simple style. I was a bit challenged by the fitted capped raglan sleeves, so I deconstructed an old dress with a similar sleeve and used that as a template. The key for that sleeve fit and style, was to take the raglan and cut it into 2 pieces, so it's a raglan with an actual shoulder line. That made it easier to shape. The body of the dress was just constructed directly against the sized dress form with lots of pins.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? n/a
Fabric Used: A polyester Ponte knit from Fabricland. It has a "barely there" zigzag weave embossed. Super easy to sew on my sewing machine. The fabric didn't stretch at all while stitching but it has great stretch for wearing. I have a new serger (still in box), but didn't want to "learn" on this project because I had promised my daughter that she would have an actual costume to wear LOL. I'll start serging on cheapo, low risk projects next week !!!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: My DD wanted a deeper V-Neck than the original design and also wanted to forgo the black mock neck. I suppose it's a little "flirtier" this way. Also, she'll be coming for a fitting today and I know that she'll be wanting that hemline hiked up at least a few inches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Fun to sew. One time thing.
Conclusion: One of my first attempts to sew without pattern pieces and an easy draping project to start expanding from.
Happy Halloween PR people!
