Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Rayon Challis  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: I made the sleeveless version with ruffles, view C.

Pattern Sizing: 14-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Well mine semed a little blousier in the top than the pattern pic.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I thought this pattern was a little too challenging for my skill level. I particularly had difficulty with the collar.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the classic style.

Fabric Used: I think it's a rayon challis...? Bargin Bin at Joann's in Sioux Falls.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably won't sew it again as I found it a little difficult and seemed to take a long time to finish.

Conclusion: Not a favorite, but I'll wear it.

I think it looks so pretty on you. I love bright colors and prints, so my eye went immediately to this review in the gallery. I think it stinks you had trouble, but I couldn't even tell. You should wear this one with pride! :)
