|Pattern Description: Lace dress with underlining. I made view A.|
Pattern Sizing:Mine was made up in size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yep!
Were the instructions easy to follow?Very. It's a great pattern if, like me, you had never worked with a lace or a fabric like lace that required lining. The instructions were terrific!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I really enjoyed learning how to do underling. Too easy!
Fabric Used:For the main fabric, I used a Marc Jacobs sheer sparkly sheer lurex blend. The underling was a medium weight silk, and for the lining I used my usual rayon lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I made my dress longer, as it was a smidge too on the small side for a prude like me!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Would I sew it again? Oh, gee, look at this amazing green lace that would be just perfect for this pattern. How one earth did that arrive in my stash? ;)
Conclusion: Great dress, very easy to make. In fact, I even enjoyed doing the hand stitching. You can check it out more on my blog,
