Last Dress of the Fall Collection 2007 - S3673
This is the very last dress sewn for the fall/winter 2007 collection and is my least favorite dress out of the seven. It's not the best choice for my body shape. View C would have been better for me. I made view A minus the bow/buckle at the waist.
Pattern Description: Misses dresses or jumpers with skirt variations
Pattern Sizing: 8 to 22. I made size 14 with alterations.
The finished dress looked like the pattern illustration except in eliminated the bow and buckle at the waist and used black for the band.
The instructions were easy to follow.
Likes and Dislikes: Initially I like the retro look of the jumper and thought it would be good addition to my work wardrobe. This view is not flattering on me.
Fabric Used:wool blend from JoAnn's
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:FBA and broad back. I probably needed to a little more move in the top of this dress as it is snug through the bodice area.
I won't sew this view again. But I would recommend it to others. Several people at PR had great success with this pattern and style of this dress.
Conclusion: This is a fairly deceit pattern. I have already worn this dress. I will wear it, but probably with a jacket.
