Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there. It's the hardest job I've ever had to do yet I gladly show up for it each and every day. I originally planned to wear something else to dinner and this was supposed to be my back up dress but since we decided to do dinner on Saturday so that I can chill on Sunday, I didn't have enough time. I love this dress, style and fabric. I saw someone with a similar dress at the end of last Summer and knew I would soon be making one of my own. The fabric is a "trendy knit" I picked up from Fabric Mart during one of their knit sales.
and of course the gratuitous shoe shot
Here is my review:
Pattern Description: MISSES'UNLINED JACKETS AND DRESSES: Close-fitting, unlined jacket in 2 lengths has front extending into single-layer tie ends(wrong side shows). Very close-fitting, pullover dresses. E and F: front seam detail, bias upper/middle fronts, and lower front/back (cut on crosswise grain of fabric. All have narrow hems.
Pattern Sizing: A5(6-8-10-12-14),E5(14-16-18-20-22)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Definitely!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Since I made this before, I didn't even use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The thing I like about this pattern is there is no special bra needed but there is a slight racer back.
Fabric Used: A knit of unknown content
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Since this is my second version, I think that answers that question. I would recommend this to others.
Conclusion: 2 down, so many more to go.
