Pattern Description: fit and flare dress with pleats
Pattern Sizing: 6-24
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 - This is a Palmer and Pletch pattern and I followed instructions to alter for a fuller bust. I ended up overcompensating, but I was able to easily remove the extra width from the bodice and get a perfect fit.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the cut - flattering fit
Fabric Used: stretch cotton polka dot Jones New York fabric
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: FBA - and then a second alteration for extra width. Turns out I only needed to lengthen the bust slightly, not add width...
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes & yes
Conclusion: I love how this came out - I need the weather to get warmer so I can wear it. (It was almost freezing when I took these pics!)
