|Pattern Description: |
lovely fitted sheath dress with slightly crossed front neck line
I made size 14 with modifications to shorten from waist to neckline
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The order of sewing was poorly thought out, but able to be followed. Do not edgestitch or top stitch the neck line (step 12) before putting in the zipper(step 37). Also do not sew the skirt backs together (step 17) before inserting the invisible zipper. The vent placket is fussier than it needs to be. Attaching the skirt to the midriff is way more complex than necessary, just pin and sew it together, you don't need the convoluted steps 32 to 35.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Original pattern is extremely long from shoulder to waist - check this measurement carefully before cutting fabric. It would be very difficult to modify after cutting.
Aquamarine cotton linen blend
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the bodice pieces by 3/4" below armhole and 1/8" above armhole. I also shortened the midriff piece by 1/2". Without these changes the waist seam would have been too far down on the hip (on a 5'5" person)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, but not for a beginner.
A nice pattern, but I do wish someone with sewing knowledge had proofread the instructions before publication.
