Happy Monday! Took a break from making tops to complete this easy shift dress. The pattern review is below.
Pattern Description: Misses' Dress
Pattern Sizing: Size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? It looked exactly like the photo!
Were the instructions easy to follow? I honestly did not read the instructions. I skimmed through them and did it my way.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the darts (both the ones at the bust and the back). It gave it a little more shape.
Fabric Used: I used a knit fabric to avoid installing a zipper because I wanted a really easy and comfortable dress. The pattern actually recommends lightweight wools, woven blends, and linens.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not add the pockets because I felt my fabric had a busy pattern and didn't want to overdo it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! I'd love to try it in a woven blend fabric and also add the pockets.
Conclusion: It's a great pattern for beginners and advanced sewists. The pattern is basic enough to make changes and make it your own.
