I made this dress for a sorority event and it went over really well. Although I've have the fabric for months, I waited until the last possible moment to sew it. I only had about 1 3/8 of a yard of fabric and cannot image using any other pattern. When I use regular size sequined fabric, I sew right over the sequins. Not so in this case. The dime-sized paillettes had to be removed for the seam allowance before sewing.
Misses'/Misses' petite dress. Semi-fitted through the bust, lined dress have neckline variations and back zipper.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think I bought this pattern because it has back darts but I didn't sew them in this dress
Dime sized sequins for mesh.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The only alterations I made to the pattern were to enlarge the bust dart. I am so anal about drag lines pointing to the bust.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I think this will be my "go" pattern in a pinch when using sequined fabric.
