Pattern Description: Misses Dress

Fabric Used: Knit (feels like an ITY) HERE

Pictures on My Blog

Pattern Sizing: I Cut the 8 (31B, 24W, 33.5H) and had to shave it down a lot. I took out almost 3" off the skirt portion and 2" off the top. I also added 2.5" in length.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a Vogue "Easy" so yes I found it to be rather straight forward. There is no real complicated or confusing steps.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the wrap front, the sleeves and the tie belt which is attached to the dress.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added length and had to shave it down some to fit.

Would you sew it again? No, I have so many dress patterns to sew but this is a winner for sure.

Would you recommend it to others? YES!

Fabulous style and colour. Shame about the side seams puckering at the hemline, which is always difficult to control in this type of fabric.
