Pattern Description: "Misses and Miss Petite dress with seamed bodice and pleated, flared skirt. Design elements include upper bodice with neckline and back variations and long or cap sleeves. Great for day or evening."
Pattern Sizing: I honestly don't remember what size I cut. Smaller, because it is a big 4 pattern, then maybe a little smaller because my fabric has a lot of stretch
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yea, no problems there at all. Pretty simple from what I remember. Much harder for me to match up the plaids on all the seams than anything to do with the pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the dress. It is super cute, but I don't think it is really my style...Which I probably could have figured out before I made it. The pleats end right at my hips...not too flattering on me, in my opinion.
Fabric Used: A stretchy plaid. Probably polyester. I've had it around for years.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Nope. Switched around some grainlines to work with the plaid, and used bias tape instead of piping in between the top and the bottom bodice
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I wouldn't sew it again, but I think it would work well for others. It just isn't really my style, maybe I made it too small, maybe it would look better in different fabrics....something. Not BAD though, so definitely check it out if it interests you! It might grow on me eventually, who knows!
Meh. Go for it. I'm just being weird about not liking it. I'm sure it is more personal than it being a bad pattern!
