Pattern Description: Girls Dresses in Two lengths, with the option of straps or a strapless summer dress.
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?This pattern was marked easy, but I think this pattern is suited for an Advanced Beginner.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?In my opinion this pattern was not easy. The zipper section was hard to understand, it ended up that the zipper required the entire length of the bodice and this was my 1st zipper experience.
Fabric Used:Cotton Blend
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:The only alteration made was to add lining to the bodice section. I also took in the sides in about 3 inches overall to fit my small frame DD.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't know if I would sew it again, however I would recommend this to an Advanced beginner that has an understanding of zippers, interfacing, darts etc...
Conclusion: I am a beginner and I thought this pattern would have been easy and a quick sew, but it was a lot more work than anticipated. Keep in mind that if you have a tall child you may have to extend the length. I ended up cutting out a size 9 in the flounce and 8 in the bodice and tucked in where applicable otherwise it would have been almost 1.5" to 2" above the knee.
I hope this helps and Happy Sewing!
