Pattern Description: Close fitting dress, with lined bodice with darts, raised neckline with front slit, extended shoulders, back zipper. Options for sleeveless, short-sleeved, straight, or flared skirt
|I love how well this fabric draped|
Pattern Sizing: Available in 6-22. I cut a 16.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!!!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very. I glanced at them but didn't really follow them once I started sewing.
|Perfectly aligned seams|
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The neckline and bodice darts really stand out on this pattern which I really like. This pattern was well drafted and everything lined up beautifully. No dislikes.
|Love the neckline darts|
Fabric Used: A cherry red double knit
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I omitted the zipper. I also lined the bodice with a black crepe de chine from my stash. The armscye was lower than I had anticipated but not a deal breaker.
Conclusion: I don't know what took me so long to make this pattern. I purchased it shortly after it came out and the fabric store was having a pattern sale. It sat in my bin for the longest but I am glad I finally made it and am very happy with the result.
