Hope everyone had a great weekend ;-) the fan and I had a pretty chill weekend and daddy day so I was able to rest. I also am on day 12 of not Chantix and so far so good. I have not had a cigarette in 5 days and I feel ok. Now on to the pattern review, pics of what I wore and at the end of this email a few
pics of "my life"
Get The Look + Pattern Review NL 6123 (Modified)
Pattern Description: Misses' dress with sleeve and bodice variations including flattering drape and ruffle detail. I made a red version HERE
Pattern Sizing: The smallest size is 8 but I cut at least 3.5" of ease!!! off the skirt portion and about 2.5" off the bodice.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, looks just like view A minus the sleeves.
Were the instructions easy to follow? They are really easy to understand and are pretty clear throughout.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the wrap bodice, it is very flattering and the dress is easy to wear. I didn't want sleeves so I just omitted them.
Fabric Used: I used a Purple Double Knit found HERE Less expensive option HERE
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made?: The only changes to the dress was the omission of the sleeves and I added 2" to the length which I mentioned I wished I had done to the previous version I made. I did not line this dress, I used bias binding for the neck and armholes.
Would you sew it again? I am going to use the bodice of this pattern to make a maxi ;)
Would you recommend it to others? Yes
