close up of the ruffleFabric: Soft satin fabric, this has been in my stash for about 3 years, from Fabricland I guess.
Pattern Description: Misses' dress in three lengths with neckline variations.
Pattern Sizing: I cut size 14 for the bodice, but didn’t have enough for the skirt so I folded the remaining 46” fabric into 2 to make the skirt. I had barely enough to go round my hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Pretty close
Were the instructions easy to follow: Absolutely easy to follow. However, instead of hemming the ruffle, I used my narrow hem foot to make the hem; this technique not only makes the hem faster to do but neater as well.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I did ½” FBA, lengthened the bodice by 1.5” and raised the neck by 1". The pattern called for 3.5 meters but I had just about 3 meters fabric for this style so I improvised a bit on the skirt as stated above. Also my skirt is about 3 inches longer than the pattern suggested for view C but I love the length this way also did not add the pocket...
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like everything, nothing to dislike at all. I just need the right spanx because of some problem areas showing…..lol
Would you recommend it to others? Highly recommend, if you like this style.
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone, it's been brutally cold here in Calgary, the lowest yesterday was -36 degree , presently it's -32 degree celcius......we are in for a cold week!!!!
