Time to Sew:
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
about a 3
(Front View. Forgive the tan lines. I've been rocking alot of Peplum tops & tank tops this Summer. I forgot us black girls get them LOL! )
I cut the 12 for the bust and graded to the 14 for the hips. I did some further nips/tucks to get the fit just right.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved the style!!!
Sheer, deep burgundy knit with black a gold flower/pattern print
(Pic of fabric is a bit photobleached (fabric is obviously darker) but you can see the leaves & flowers etched in gold)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did my usual short-waisted back alteration
I took in the an inch or so at the bust side seam to prevent gaping
What would you do differently next time?:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Gorgeous dress! Fancy but definitely wearable for a less fancy occasions!
