Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but I did my own thing. See below.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the finished dress. It is very easy to sew. The neckline is very low. And for me, it was very long.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I raised the neckline by 3 inches. I don't know if this was too much (?) but I wouldn't have felt comfortable exposing my bra, and I hate wearing camisoles under dresses.
I shortened the length of the skirt on the pattern by 2 inches, but ended up taking a further 3 inches off the length. I am 5 foot 3 inches and with some clever laying out of pattern pieces I was able to cut this dress out of 3 metres of fabric.
I ended up chopping out a huge 3 inch wedge from the centre back (after I had sewn the dress up), tapering down to nothing at the front before hitting the pleats in front, as a kind of crude sway back adjustment. If I want to sew this again I will have to adjust the paper pattern.
I chose to overlock my edges, turn them over and stitch down rather than doing narrow hems.
I set the sleeves in flat.
I shortened the sleeves by 2 inches.
I omitted the zip.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might, and yes, I definitely recommend.
Quick and easy project with great results. Great for a beginner too!
