Time to Sew:
About 4 hours
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
4, it would've been less but the instructions for dress B were a bit confusing.
Mock wrap dress
10 for the bodice and graded to a 12 for the waist and below.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
For view B, not particularly. There were only instructions for view A. Only one side of the overlay would show so it needed to be finished. If you did both like in view A---as I did--- that would be a waste of time. I should've went with my gut and just put it together sans the instructions. But like a moth to a flame I so get suckered into reading them for the easy stuff LOL!!!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a wrap dress. Everyone loves those!
A teal matte jersey with neat designs
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. Added 3" in length
2. Made the sleeves
3. Stabilized the shoulder seam and neckline with clear elastic (I can't stand a lose neckline on a knit).
4. Used serger and coverstitch machines to construct and finish.
5. I coverstitched the neck edge, side overlay, and skirt hem in black so it would especially be visible.
What would you do differently next time?:
Not follow the directions and sew the panels the way I want, one side unfinished.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Possibly. It's a quick knit dress.
Can be worn with tights, leggings, a cardigan or cute jacket.
