Below knee dress has close-fitting self-lined bodice with casing, slightly flared skirt and back zipper.
I used the size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked how easy it was to follow and the fact that it's barely 2 pages so it's pretty easy to whip up. Although I didn't have any real issues with adding the boning to the dress, the next strapless dress I make will have more intricate construction. Unfortunately this dress doesn't provide enough support to go without any undergarments.
Stretch sateen with 3 different shades of red leaves.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't really make any.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't think I'll sew this one again. But I definitely recommend it to others especially if they want a project that's easy to sew, gives great results, and has a quick turnaround time.
