|Pattern Description: |
I used view A. The pattern is a dress made out of panels.
Not too good, I'd recommend going a size down from what the pattern says. According to the pattern my bust size of 100cm corresponded to a size 16, however the dress was falling off me. I had to take both the waist and bust in.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yeah! It was pretty close actually! I wanted a more casual dress personally, so I chose a cotton, but using a satin or silk you could make a cocktail dress.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Sort of. I improvised on a few steps to ie: understitch and slipstitch instructions because I'm lazy, haha~
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I was really annoyed at the sizing. I usually make a mock-up of some poplin but I went ahead and made it thinking it would be okay. The pattern says it's close fitting, but as I said earlier I recommend a size down.
I used pure cotton lawn for the lining (it's super lightweight) and a children's cotton print for the main fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I brought the waist in from the side panels and middle back panels, and the bust brought in with fabric under the armpits.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I want to sew it again, it's super flattering, but I would buy the pattern in a 12~14 next time. I love it!
Overall, probably easier for someone with experience and patience. I really love the pattern, I hope to make view C at some point!
Sorry about my face in first pic, it was really bright out and I wasn't wearing makeup X___X
