|Pattern Description: |
Workroom from Project Runway, misses belted knit dress with neckline and sleeve variations. New Look Just 4 Knits sewing pattern.
I made view A, without the collar, but changed the skirt to a flared one.
10 - 22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Probably not, because I swapped the skirt out for a flared skirt from my Lady Skater Pattern.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, although I changed the order of construction somewhat. I set my sleeves in flat and then sewed up the sleeves and bodice sides in one.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I LOVE the silhouette of this dress, the comfort, fit and how secure I feel in the bodice. It doesn't gape or needed constantly adjusting. I did stabilise the left and right fronts of the bodice using twill tape. Nothing to dislike as such. I didn't think the skirt would be a flattering style for me so changed it. I was in two minds about the sleeves. Next time round I may adjust the length. If I was using a thinner jersey I might size down.
A soft double knit fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I changed the order of construction and inserted the sleeves in flat and then sewed the sleeves and side seams up.
I changed the skirt for a flared one.
I stabilised the left and right front bodice edges using twill tape.
I did a 1 inch sway back adjustment.
I omitted the elastic at the waist.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would love a dark coloured version and a printed one too. Love it! Highly recommend.
I now see why this pattern was voted at number 5 in the Best Patterns of 2013 on PR.com. It is a great, simple to sew pattern which is flattering, comfortable and a great addition to your stash.
