|Pattern Description: |
Simple dress with darts and back zip, and side seam pockets.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, except I chose to omit sleeves
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I do love this pattern - it's my second Peony, and I like the fact it looks very different without the sleeves.
A lightweight cotton - I lined with a light cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Without the sleeves, this dress fitted me a lot better, which makes me think that I didn't have enough underarm room with the sleeves set in place on my first Peony. I'm really happy with it. I've included a picture of my muslin, showing the horizontal band of excess fabric I stitched out of the bodice. I don't know if this is the right way to approach fitting, but it did work for me on this particular pattern. There's a little bit more on my blog
