Pattern Description:
Threads misses/women dress pattern also includes top, pants, jacket, scarf and knit cardigan.

Pattern Sizing: I used multi size AA which includes size 10 through to 18. I cut a 14 neck and 18 side seams.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? There,s. Lot to like about this pattern. It includes a lot of different co-or donating garments that are easy to wear designs and fairly quick to make. There is Nothing to dislike.

Fabric Used:

Not sure of fibre content. It is similar to a crepe.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lined the dress with Bremsilk and omitted the neck facing. To improve fit I used 2.5 cm side and shoulder seams and pin fitted before sewing. Also increased width and length of bust darts and lowered them.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes definitely. Lovely and comfortable to wear and can be worn as casual wear or for work. Already thinking of making this for summer in white embroidered cotton.

Great pattern for everyday wear. Already made the knit cardigan twice and love this dress.

I have posted more details on my blog

That looks like it would be a great summer dress, with some protection for you shoulders, loose enough for air flow, but still with some shape. And the colors in the fabric you selected are wonderful.
