Here is my review;
Fabric:Matte jersey I got few months ago
Pattern Description: Partially lined, pullover dress has short dolman sleeves elastic waistline and neckline with tie ends, stiched hems and above mid-knee length. Purchased stoppers for tie end
Pattern Sizing: BB, 8-14. I cut 14 and added 1" to both sides of the hip
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Pretty much, but mine is a bit longer
Were the instructions easy to follow: Super easy , didn't use it for most part
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Here are few alterations I did
(a) Lengthened the bodice by 2.5"
(b)Lengthened the skirt by 3.5"
(c)Used the seam allowances of the bodice & skirt to make the casing for the waist.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Nothing to dislaike , a simple and beautiful dress, and a staple for summer, very easy to make as well, with all the alterations I did, it took me roughly 3 hours to finish
Would you recommend it to others? ….Highly recommend if you are into this type of style. The pattern runs short though, I guess that’s the intent, but I lengthened mine enough to be appropriate for work.
I might sew it again, because am presently on fabric diet so another one will be a good stash buster…..
Please PM me at asewfit at yahoo dot ca if you are interested in this fabric. I still have some left. Available in navy blue as well.
Enjoy the rest of the week!!!
