Super Easy Knit Dress with Vogue V1929

Pattern Description:  Vogue V1929 - Top and dress are loose-fitting through bust and have asymmetric off-the-shoulder necklines. Both top and dress include extra-long sleeves with thumbhole cuffs and stitched hems. Below-waist pull-on pants have elasticized waist and stitched hem.

Pattern Sizing:  It comes in two size groupings (8-16) and (18-26).  I used size 16 with very few modifications as I sewed.

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? Typical, but the instructions were super easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  I love the draped neck/shoulder and the seaming on the top and dress.  It was so easy to make this dress.  It only took about an hour and a half to sew.  

Fabric Used:  I purchased this texture knit from New Rainbow Fabrics on Roosevelt Road in Chicago.  It was on sale last Friday.  The fabric has a spongy knit texture/feel, like Liverpool knit.  I washed and dried the fabric.  It came out of the dryer wrinkle free and ready for me to cut into.  

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't do alterations.  I didn't serge any seams, it knit.  No raveling.  For the hem of the sleeves and dress, I simply made a small hem.  Because I want to wear this dress to church, I did a little tack of the drape at the shoulder show that the entire shoulder isn't exposed.  
I made one design change of omitting the lower half of the sleeve.  

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?  Oh yes,  I'll make this dress again.  Also, I have a pair of pants cut and ready to sew.  And yes, I do recommend this to all level sewists.

Conclusion: I really love the way this dress turned out.
