Pattern Description: Misses' & Plus Size pullover dress in two lengths, tunic or top with shoulder pleat detailing, sleeve variation and tie belt at the waist and pull-on pants. Simplicity sewing pattern.

Pattern Sizing: XXS-XS-S-M-L-XL-XXL. I cut the medium.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, although my busy print hides alot of the details.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the pleats in the shoulder and the added back darts for shaping. However, I am not keen on the facings. They are a bit of a pain when wearing the top.

Fabric Used: Jersey picked up from Goldhawk Road priced at £3.99 per metre

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None, I sewed this straight out of the envelope.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would dew this again, but I am not sure that I would sew this in a woven. I like the drape of a knit. I am tempted to make the dress in a black jersey.

Conclusion: Great wardrobe builder and I know that I will wear this top alot. More pics and info on my BLOG!
