I've been seriously wanting a red dress for the past month or so. I think this obsession started right after Thanksgiving. I had to put it all on hold while we were doing so much stuff concering Kayla but as SOON as I was able to sit down and sew it was on.
I already knew what I wanted to make, until I saw this dress on pinterest:
It's so simple, yet so beautiful. I was in love.
Mine is a little different from my inspiration dress. I wanted the neck of my dress more fitted, a tad bit longer and 3/4 sleeves. I don't know what it is, but I don't really care for long sleeves on certain knit dresses.
I kept my accessories simple. Shoes, belt and purse are all old.
My super cute phone case however is an accessory that is new, well I got it after Thanksgiving but before Christmas lol. If you like it you can pick one up from http://www.shopjunkboxx.com/ I LOVE that they had a stylish lady on a cell phone case that is the same color I am. That is SO hard to find.
Expect to see a black version of this dress real soon. I made both of them the same night. LOVE it!
Pattern Sizing: 12-20
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved how simple this pattern was. It gave me exactly what I was looking for. A simple turtleneck dress.
Fabric Used: Ponte knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 4 inches to the length and shortened the sleeves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've made it in black already. Not sure if I want another color. I highly recommend this pattern. Its a great basic to have.
Conclusion:Great pattern, very easy and great for beginners. I orginally purchased this pattern just for the dress, but I feel the skirt pattern would be great as well.
