V1250 - The Easiest Dress Ever
Pattern Description: MISSES' DRESS: Close-fitting dress.
Pattern Sizing: 6-20; I used size 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? A piece of cake. This pattern only had three pieces. Simple: 1, 2, 3 and it's done.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was easy, attractive, and sewed together in two hours. No dislikes.
Fabric Used: Jersey knit; I think rayon from the remnant room at Vogue for about $10.00.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added two inches to the length. Instead of machine sewing the hem of the sleeves, I hand stitched them. It was easier to control the fabric. I added stitch witchery to the hem of the dress to help control the movement of the fabric as it passed through the needle path.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES, and YES. Carolyn is my enabler. Lol After reading her post about her third dress, I couldn't resist. My next version, I will tweak it just a little. At the small of my back it stands away from my body. I want it to lay closer to me.
Conclusion: This is a great dress that is super easy and super cute. It's sews together within two hours time. Love it.
