Kangaroo Pocket Sneaker Dress

6747


My "go-to" pattern for a quick and easy dress. I call it a sneaker dress because it looks just as good with sneakers as it does with heels.
Pattern Description:
Pullover, close-fitting top and dresses have button neck and front bands, and stitched hems.
Pattern Sizing:
XS-XXL which translates to sizes 4-26. I made the large
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Not really


Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use them at all
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
 I really love this pattern because it is so versatile and includes a center back seam that enables me to use less fabric.
Fabric Used:
Cotton knit from JoAnn's. it has an "oxford-like" texture. I wish I could find more of it!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I omitted the front button placket, I've added a 1" FBA (horizontal dart)  as I do on all my patterns. I raised the neckline a little and added contrast armbands. I used the pocket pattern from McCall's 7061 because I love the shape and size of it and added contrast bands onto the pocket opening. I also shaved off some of the A-Line shape and turned up and top-stitched a 1 1/2" hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I've already used it multiple time and will use it many more
Conclusion:
This pattern was released in 2013 and is now out-of-print, but if you do have it in your stash it's worth digging out and using.
