Fabric:Ponte Knit  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: MISSES' VEST, JACKET, TOP, DRESS, SKIRT AND PANTS: Semi-fitted, lined vest or jacket has collar, seam detail, and bias back belt. Close-fitting, pullover top or dress has collar and stitched hems. Flared skirt and tapered pants are below waist. D: lower front band, front extends to side back, no side seams, self-lined yoke back, and left side back zipper. F: loose-fitting through hips, front pleats, bias, front button waistband and mock fly zipper. I made the dress.

Pattern Sizing:12-20. I cut a size 16.

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

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love turtlenecks and I have been searching for a turtleneck dress to wear for work. It fits great and was an absolute breeze to construct. The neck fits tightly so no worries about a droopy t-neck.

Fabric Used: black ponte roma from Joann's

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Added 4" in length. The sleeves were large at the wrist so I might taper down to smaller size next time.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. I plan on making a navy one as well.

Conclusion: great classic design. I think this is what you call a TNT pattern.

TY for the review! I think you are right: it fits great (not too tight, etc.) and perhaps this is why the dress looks both like RTW from Nordstrom and like it is made from a higher quality fabric (than anything from the JoAnn's around here anyway). Plus you just look good in a turtleneck, ma'am! Very nice.
