Pattern Description: Dress

Pattern Sizing: I cut a 14 but ended up bringing it down to a 12

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? They where very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? There was nothing I disliked about the pattern

Fabric Used: I purchased fabric off the remnant table so there was no name for it but it looks similar to a Double Knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthened ( because I have long arms )

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I plan on sewing it in another print

Conclusion: The dress was very easy . I think what really set the dress off was the print !

Buy this pattern for $10.80  List Price: $13.50   Add to Bag Add to Bag

Beautiful! I passed over this pattern because the drawings were unremarkable, but your dress is lovely.
