Pattern Description:

MISSES' DRESS: Dress has ruffles, semi-fitted, lined bodice and inset, raised waist and back zipper. A: self-lined sleeves. A and B: semi-fitted skirt and stitched hem. C: lined sleeves and narrow hem.

Pattern Sizing:

14-22, I made the 20

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

yes, although I made pattern additions

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Nothing to complicated, unless you are a beginner then maybe the inset may be annoying.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

The ruffles!

Fabric Used:

Black Linen and Teal Brocade from Joann's

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Color blocking at the inset and sleeves

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes I recommend it, as by the number or reviews the dress flatters most shapes and is fun to put together.


Nice addition to any closet, you can find more details on how I made the inset and sleeve changes on my blog:

I like the peekaboo color - keeps it flirty like the ruffles. Nice colors too
