VOGUE 1224

 

 

b>Pattern Description: </b> Partially lined, pullover dress has short dolman sleeves, elasticized waistline and neckline with tie ends, stitched hems and above mid-knee length. Purchased stoppers for tie ends

<b>Pattern Sizing:</b>16-24

<b>Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?</b>Yes

<b>Were the instructions easy to follow?</b>Yes

<b>What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?</b>the neckline

<b>Fabric Used:</b>ity Jersey from Joanne’s

<b>Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:</b>I wanted to take some of the fullness out of the sleeves and did not read the directions fully and actually took about two inches off of the shoulder seams instead of the width of the sleeves.  In the end I would have liked the original sleeve but didnt give it a chance.  My adjustment to the shoulders make the waistline sleeve much higher more of a empire waist sleeve.  I lengthened the skirt by 4 inches and it still wasnt long enough!! I also moved the tie from the neckline to the waist.

<b>Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?</b>I may sew it again but with a much longer length.  Recommend yes

<b>Conclusion: </b>I am going to shorten this and make it a shirt.  I am not as in love with the fabric as I thought.  It would definitely make a nice dress if I hadnt messed it up.  LOL!!!

    Looks better on you than the form. i’m guessing you’re seeing the form even when you are wearing it. CUTE DRESS, could also be paired with leggings or skinny jeans as is. in short, the dress looks gorgeous on you.
