Knit Dress in two lengths with Bodice variations
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
No - but that is because I made it as a V-neck T-shirt not a dress!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes (followed them when I made the toile dress...which is why I made it as a top in the end)
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Clear instructions, many variations
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I added a V-neck
2. The skirt did not suit me so I made it as a top with a band at the bottom - next time I would made the band a little longer as I feel it is a little too short
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes - but probably one of the variations, or with a fun print.
Can be hard sewing through many layers in the ruching, but it is worth it.
I just wanted to make something for me so I rushed this off - which I KNOW I should not do. I made several mistakes - this is far from being my best work, but at least I have a top to wear. Now to consider if I will enter it into Spring Top Week! Part of the problem was sewing it in poor light at night so I could not see properly!
I don't like the fact that the ruching is not fixed in place so it changes about. I think next time I would try either a different variation or machining over the ruched section with a stretch stitch obviously!
