Okay, okay, I realize this dress has been on the “In Progress” side of the page for some time now... truth is, I forgot how to change it, and it’s been completed for a few months! This little dress has some versatility for me since I’ve worn it on an evening out, and to the festival in the park. I think it’s pretty jazzy but the midriff had me confused a little. Ok maybe not confused, but I must confess I am very lazy when it comes to hand sewing, grrrr! Please don't poke me with needles, I know! But the midriff requires some hand sewing and me…. well, I’m all about quick, fast, and right now.
The fabric is a knit I purchased @ High Fashion Fabrics, and it is soo lovely! It has weight but it’s lightweight with a beautiful drape, (yeah explained that clearly didn't I, lol) Well this is clearly not a LBD, but it’s my Little Black & White Dress, and its special!
Pattern Sizing: Varies 6-20, I used a 14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I thought so
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very straight forward
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I hate any hand stitching, but it really added to the overall look of the dress so all is good in the world, lol.
Fabric Used: A knit, that’s all I kno
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No major changes were made, I just omitted the zip since it’s a knit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? It’s a great dress, I think you’d like it. ;-)
Conclusion: Overall it’s an easy sew, I love knits so I may be biased, lol. Pretty versatile, heels or sandals work well with the dress design.
I must say that I do love, love knits you’re not the only one Victoria, lol. I’ve been sewing knits all summer @ least that’s what it looks like in my closet! But I’ve been working on a few woven's too, I actually need to get my review up on m6024, that’s also been lingering on my sidebar as well. Well, that’s my LB&WD.
