Pattern Description:
A simple wrap dress. Easy to sew.
Pattern Sizing:
I cut a size 10. My fabric has a lot of stretch in it, I could have gone down a size.
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, very clear and easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a cute dress and is very comfortable. I'll be honest, the pattern has gathers on the front panels. I didn't like that. It feels a little frumpy. But, I can wrap the tie around pretty tightly and it makes it ok.
Fabric Used:
ITY fabric I got on sale for $5 a yard.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I think I may have shortened it a little.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably won't sew this pattern again, but I will wear the dress. If you want a wrap dress, this is a quick sew - but be warned that the gathers in the front may not be the look you want.
Conclusion:
A good pattern, cute dress.
