Misses'/Women's dress or tunic
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes and no. The instructions were just fantastic until it came time to put on the facing. I'm not sure a beginner would be able to figure it out. I was only able to get it sewn because I have sewn plackets in the past.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the it looks like a shirt dress but without the button down the front.
Brushed twill w/spandex
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I took a chance here. After measuring the pattern I decided I could have a go at the pattern right out of the envelope. I made an 18 and while I did add 5/8 at the hip to make sure that there would be 3" ease as the pattern suggests...I didn't need it. Had I gone down a size it would have not fit as was intended. I originally thought I would wear a belt with it but my fabric is too bulky. In a way it does have a "housedress" feel, but I still love it. It's extremely comfortable.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might sew it again but will steer clear of any florals as it would absolutely look like a "housedress."
With the right accessories this is a guaranteed winner.
I haven't been blogging a much as usual and it's all Adrienne's fault. She has gotten me hooked on scrapbooking. I really enjoy card making as well. Cards like this one is what I've been spending a lot of my spare time making.
