Pattern Description: from pattern envelope: MISSES' TOPS AND DRESSES: Pullover tops and dresses have neckline variations, and elasticized (seamed) waist. A: lower left side gathers and exposed zipper. A and B: loose-fitting . C: elasticized side seams on lower section. C and D: very loose-fitting, gathered (bias front) bodice. B and D: semi-fitted skirt. Stitched hem A, C and sleeves B. Narrow hem back neckline A, B and neckline/armholes C and D.
Designed for medium weight knits.


Pattern Sizing: 6-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn't like that dress was so short but that was easily remedied. Sometimes I find myself having to adjust the drape so the wrong side doesn't show.

Fabric Used: ITY knit from Fabric Mart

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Lengthened skirt by 4 inches; swayback adjustment; added 1/4 inch to side seams of skirt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes would recommend with alteration for added length unless you like really short dresses.

Conclusion: This is definitely a TNT pattern. It is a very quick sew, very flattering, and extremely comfortable. Each time I wear this dress I receive numerous compliments.
Buy this pattern for $14.36  List Price: $17.95   Add to Bag Add to Bag
