Misses dress with front and sleeve variations.
The sizing didn’t need any massive changes
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
As far as I followed the instructions it was spot on. As it was such a straightforward and easy pattern I was able to wing it a little.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The fit around the neckline was slightly out, but I think that may have been due to my shoulder seams being slightly out.
A thickish, rough silk and lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- Sleeves made from lace and lace attached to the neckline.
- Lowered the neck line
- Added bias binding to arm hole openings.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
- Yes, it fit well, was a great length and an easy pattern.
- This pattern was fitted to a larger busted girl and looked fabulous but may need adjustments for smaller busts.
This pattern was wonderful and a great option for anyone wanting a basic shift dress. I thought it adapted to being a formal dress very well and could also see it being a good staple.
