|Pattern Description: |
An effortless Summer dress featuring double pleats at the bust, kimono sleeves and a panelled a-line skirt. Variations include both slash and v-neck options, plus midi and maxi skirt possibilities and a dramatic thigh high split. Super quick and simple to make, cut it short for the perfect festival dress, or make it worthy of the red carpet with a maxi skirt and thigh high split.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
mostly, but mine is slinky knit - not woven
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is my all time favorite dress - the bodice is so very flattering on all the versions I've seen. No dislikes - but be prepared to alter the back neck - it does run big.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This is my second version - review here I changed the length to make it a dress. I added a neckband, and used steam-a-seam lite for the sleeves and hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't think I'll ever get tired of sewing this! Yes and yes.
I really need to get a maxi version done in a woven this summer!
