Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were extremely easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love maxi dresses. I made this one for my eldest daughter. This is the only style dress she wears. I love the way the elastic casing is created. Good design.
Fabric Used: Cotton Jersey from a Britex remnant sale
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made a slit in the skirt and made bias strips for the neck and sleeve edges. I made the slit for ease of movement, however I made a size XS for my daughter but as you can see from the picture it fits me (I usually make a size 8 which would be a S in this pattern)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'm planning on making several. One for my second daughter and one for me. I definitely would recommend this pattern. It would be especially good for a relatively new sewer who would like to try sewing on a knit fabric.
Conclusion: Great dress!
11/11/13 I made the size S for me (boarder print fabric). I had to adjust the neckline because now it was too low. Otherwise I like the fit of this size on me. I serged clear elastic to the neck line and armholes before top stitching. I like this result better than the bias strips I used for the blue dress for my daughter. I did a rolled hem with blue thread. Happy with the results. Now I need to make one more...I have two daughters
