Another dress....S2584

Another beautiful dress for another beautiful client..... Cynthia Rowley dress made from African fabric....The result is a simple and stylish dress...
Here is the review

Fabric: 100% African fabric

Pattern Description: Misses Dress, Tunic and Headband Cynthia Rowley Collection. I made view B with sleeve A
Pattern Sizing: P4  12-20. Cut  between 14 and 16 for the client

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Not really, because client wants it to hit her knee so I lengthened  and didnt make wide hem band.

Were the instructions easy to follow: I didn`t follow the instuction because it`similar to African men garment  I learned to sew when I went home last year so I just used the same technique.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:  I lengthened by 2 inches and didn`t do hem band

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  Client chose it because she loves the style and I love it too. It`s a simple and stylish style to sew... Highly recommend and should be straight forward for a beginner as well
