This week is insanely busy with so many projects I have going on that I cant yet tell you about...but they are awesome! and I started the week off a little slow which is why I didn't post yesterday but today I am back up to speed and ready for anything.
*Before I talk about this dress let me just say that I am apologizing in advance for the bad news I am about to tell you.....This fabric is not available... I know, I know but when I bought it there was only a small piece on the bolt it and I took it*
Fabric Used: Multi Colored Striped Rayon Blend. The fabric is not available but it would look amazing in THIS, THIS or even THIS! Use MIMIJUNE10 at check out for 10% off your purchase.
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yeah I guess so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? For a vogue pattern they were pretty standard and clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Well I liked the bodice and variations and I could see it being made severe different ways but I had a small piece of this striped fabric and so I thought I would use it as my wearable muslin.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Well....I attached the top to the skirt without trying it on (I know, crazy) and once I did try it on it was too big so I ripped it out and wrapped the sides a bit more until it fit ok and even then it was still loose around the waist which is how it was intended in the design of the dress but to me it just made my waist look wide so I belted the dress. Other then the above mentioned I didn't do much else to it.
Would you sew it again? No, I don't think I need another one of these but I do recommend it.
