(Front view: Due to hectic day pictures were taken at night. Excuse the poor lighting)
Knit Mini Dress. I made view A and added the belt.
I cut the size 12 for the bodice and graded to a size 18 beginning at the underarm curve and ending at the dress hem.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Not really since it was alot looser due to the pattern changes I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Oh, yeah! Absolutely!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the neckline sleeves.
A deep blue navy poly-lycra knit with a crepe like texture. I loved the drape of this fabric and it's SO comfortable to wear.
(Neckline up close. You can sorta see the deep blue color of the fabric and it's texture)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. As described above I cut a size 12 for the bodice and flared the dress to a size 18. I've been really obsessed with blouson dresses so I wanted a dress that had a little more fullness.
2. Shortened the sleeve and used 3/8" elastic in the sleeves.
3. Added 5" to the length
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I think so! It's such a quickie project (I made it on Saturday to wear Sunda) and I love the results. I recommend it 100%.
Cute dress! Just what I was looking for!
