I find it irritating that some patterns have numbers and some have XS-S-M-L etc. from the same company - what's up with that, Vogue?
Fabric Used: Rayon Challis from the Michael Levine Loft. This stuff crinkles up like paper, but by the same token presses flat as a pancake. You win some you lose some I suppose. I bought it figuring it would serve as great drapey muslin fabric, but I hate making muslins, and it's actually very light and airy so great in the warm weather. Surprisingly it didn't crease as much as I thought it would from wearing, so I'm excited to use the rest of it now!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't sew the darts until the bodice was otherwise fully constructed. Then I put it on and pinned the bodice closed and took up the rest of the slack in to darts. I've got some pics of the process and some more info on my blog
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were fine, I'm sure, but I mixed up the construction order, so I didn't follow them exactly.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like raglan sleeves, and I was originally disappointed to find there was a seam in the sleeve, but the rayon pressed so flat, I actually like it now, it give shape the the shoulder that you couldn't get with a one piece raglan sleeve.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the finished garment?
I think the fit I ended up with is pretty good. Of course without taking the dress apart I can't repeat it with another dress, but ho hum, I can always repeat the same process again I guess.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might, but no time soon, too many other things in the queue.
As I said, there's a few more details on my blog
