Pattern Sizing: I made the bust CS, waist CM, and hip CM
My Shape: five feet two inches, bust 34 waist 30 hip 40
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think the neckline is slightly higher than the pattern photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the sleeves
Fabric Used: Stretch Jersey Knit Abstract Houndstooth Purple
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Instead of gathers I made some box pleats in the skirt. I added in-seam pockets. I made a 2 inch hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes, I already have fabric cut for another version!
Conclusion: I am not a C cup but I didn't need to make any adjustments. I think next time I will cut the waist the same size as I cut the bust and leave the skirt the same. I like a fuller skirt and I think the box pleats work nicely. I would love to have some more versions of this dress, especially half solid fabric/half patterned fabric would work out nicely for me. This was easy to make but it took me awhile because the fabric was slippery so I hand basted it before running it through the serger. Great excuse to buy more fabric!
