Misses dress with fitted princess seam bodice, skirt with godets, and sash
I cut the size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
(A better front view)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very much so. Nothing tricky to them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the mandarin collar and godets in the skirt.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't need to make any. I didn't follow the patterns instructions for making the sash since the wrong side of my fabric would be visible. Instead I made my own version cutting 2 pieces of fabric 4" wide by 36" long. I sewed them wrong sides together leaving a small opening for turning and sewed up the opening.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I'll definitely sew this one again as well as a few other views of the pattern. I wouldn't sew it again in Rayon. The fabric, although midweight, was not stiff enough to keep the collar erect. Maybe I should have used an interfacing of a heavier weight or rigged it by adding collars stays. I'm sure I'll think of a solution for the next time:)
This is a very awesome pattern that's easy to sew, fits beautifully, and is very comfortable to wear. It's a great pattern all around!!!
By the Way, on behalf of me and my "wee-one"....... Happy Mother's Day to all of you Wonderful Mothers. Enjoy your special day. You make the world go round for so many. Take time to enjoy yourself and be pampered. You sure deserve it!!!!
