|Pattern Description: |
Dress and Jumpsuit, this time I made the dress.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes they were. I did make this pattern again, the jumpsuit to be precise (reviewed here), so I knew what to expect.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really love the tight fit around the waist and the wide waistband.
Polyester satin with a cotton lining (top) and a sort of mesh lining for the skirt. I think I only needed 2 meters for the dress, because of the much shorter skirt (it is a circular skirt, so that requires a lot of fabric).
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- I shortened the dress to knee length.
- I added piping to both sides of the waistband.
- My own suggestion in the previous review was to change the way the armholes are - I did follow that suggestion and stitched the overlapping parts together, to avoid them gaping.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I am not sure whether I will use the pattern a 3rd time. If I do, I might make it one size larger or do a small FBA, it is pretty tight now. Or use a stretchier fabric - that is a tempting idea, because I do love the pattern and highly recommend it.
Great dress, easy to put together (well, if you choose a fabric that isn't too slippery...)
