|Pattern Description: |
Stretch woven, multi seamed dress, suitable for color blocking.
Misses sizes, single size per pattern. I made a 6.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, except that I added a sleeve.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the many seams, the higher neckline, and the fact that it fits!
Poly lycra ponte knit. however, this fabric isn't as heavy as many pontes. it's more like a beefy knit. Not too heavy, not too light.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Based on other reviews, I lowered the waist by about an inch since I tend to be long waisted. I also tightened up the armhole since several reviewers commented that it was too large. I also added a sleeve since I really didn't want a sleeveless dress for this one, which required some fiddling with the facings. Since I was looking for something more conservative, I made this one all one color.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Absolutely! I recently purchased a wide leopard belt which goes with nothing in my closed, so I will need to make a dress for it (!) - I have some purchased some heavier ponte cuts in black and ivory for another version. I haven't decided if it will be with or with out sleeves yet.
This was my first attempt at a Stylearc pattern and am truly impressed. Their patterns really do fit and are not so difficult to construct. Even with the extended delivery time from Australia, it was worth the wait.
