|Pattern Description: |
Very loose fitting bodice, elastic waist, pullover mock-wrap dress.
6-22. I made a 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I don't think the photo on the pattern cover shows detail in the dress well. In my dress, the wrapped skirt is more obvious and the bodice looks baggier on my dress too.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This was a very easy dress that is quick to make. The instructions were clear, although I could have used more guidance when making the pleats on the bodice front and back. All the pleats apparently come to a point at the shoulder seam. I found this difficult to stitch through so I had the pleats slightly offset.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought this would make a good summer dress- really cute and cool. The few times I've worn it, I've found it very comfortable and fun to wear.
A lightweight polyester fabric. If I make this dress again, I will choose a fabric with a bit more weight. My fabric is too light- so the mock wrapped skirt billows too much when I walk, and the fabric gathered below the pleats puffs out rather than lays flat.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No large alterations, although I will make the bodice smaller next time- it's just too baggy. The skirt was lengthened 2" because it seemed a bit short otherwise. I also didn't fold back the sleeve, because I liked the little amount of black to contrast with the polka dots.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I really like it!
This is a great summer dress that is fast to make!
