Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes and gives lots of extra information for beginners. Worth stapling the pages into a booklet. Quaint hand drawn pictures to illustrate each stage. It's in an A4 packet.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I bought it for the pockets. I love therm on the picture but not on my dress! Love the shape and simplicity of design.
Fine wool tweed lined with bremsilk.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Because it is lined I omitted the neck facing. I also lined the pockets. It had my usual body adjustments tested in previous version of the pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes
I couldn't wait to sew this and my test version, made in stretch material, is my favourite dress. But this isn't so successful due to my fabric choice. I love the tweed but it's very very fragile and should poss be interfaced first. I chose this over other patterns because of the pockets and on this dress they are my least favourite aspect. They were a pain to do. They had to be lined up exactly with the grain. 2mm out and it looked crooked. Getting the pleats to look right was tricky. Don't know why but they were. Perhaps they'd be better in a crisper fabric. I still like the picture and my disappointment about the dress is due to my fabric choices and not the pattern. It feels good to wear and is a good weight, warm but not bulky. Comment from DH ' it's OK, nothing special' he's right.
