A long gathered skirt maxidress with an option for a tank top bodice or a crossover bodice.
XS to XL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This is a dress that is very simple to sew up and the directions are fine. I sewed it in a little over an hour.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I felt the tank top top was actually TOO revealing for once. I usually have to lower necklines and tighten my patterns to give them a little more style. In this case I had to redraft the top, raising the neckline and widening the shoulders because my daughter was too revealed in the original pattern top.
A stretch matte ITY jersey fabric with large painterly stripes.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As usual I ignored the pattern sizing instructions and cut the dress in an extra small because I’m not a fan of all of the added ease in commercial patterns.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I plan on trying this pattern in another fabric with some more design tweaks to it. It’s a great basic maxi dress pattern.
