|Pattern Description: |
Project Runway pattern. Lined dress with neckline, sleeve and pocket variations
Mine is a US 4, 6, 8, 10 ,12 or Eur 30-38
Corresponding to bust 75-107cm (29.5-42")
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, except for my modification to the neckline (raised)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. I only made the basic A-line dress, no exposed zipper, no pockets, hence they were straightforward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I was after a basic, lined, sheath dress and this is one.
Quilting cotton from my local quilting fabric store (Dragonfly Fabrics).
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1) I raised the neckline and widened the shoulder. Scooped-out necklines do not suit me. I'm not sure why I bought this pattern instead of one which had a raised neckline. Sometimes I do things which leave me perplexed.
2) Lengthened the waist 5cm. (normal alteration for me)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Definitely making it again because it is a simple sheath with room to move (see my action shot: sheesh, 3 seconds isn't long enough to get into position!). I will lower my modified neckline a little since it is too high for comfort. I may even try the scooped neckline, although I know I won't like it....as I said, sometimes I do things which boggle my mind. I love the silver version on the envelope; if only I had a bust!
Would I recommend it? It's probably very similar to a hundred other A-line sheath patterns out there but yeah, sure, if you like the scoop neckline and style of dress, the pattern itself is fine.
A basic A-Line sheath dress which has the potential to be dressed up or down depending on fabric. Quite versatile with the sleeve and neckline variations.
