What a jazzy little dress! I'm just luvin the cut-outs on the sleeves and that low open back, too cute. I've been a fan of Cythia Rowley patterns for some time, and she never disappoints, with her fun and trendy styles. So, I decided to go with a light-weight denim fabric, for my version of this dress and I'm pretty pleased with it! I love that it has inseam pockets, now I really dig pockets an all, but they can be a snitch for me to get right, lol. I also needed a drink to figure out those sleeve too, but I still love my dress tho, lol. Btw, I'm sure you kno this is not a bra friendly dress, right?
size range 6-22, I made the 14, view B
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were okay, I got confused on the sleeves.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The dress was great, but I had issues with the instructions on the sleeves, and I eventually figured those out. Honestly, I must say that I always have difficulty with inseam pockets, so surely, after a cocktail, all was well, there too.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None, I just did some top stitching, to give more play to the denim design.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I only need one, but the other versions want me to make them too!
Although this simple looking dress, gave me a challenge, I really love the design.
Thanx for stoppin by...
