12:00 AM

Project Details:

Pattern: McCall's 5845

Fabric: Grey and black leopard print - Poly Charmeuse

Notions: 14" invisible zipper

Description: Fitted, lined dresses A, B have extended shoulders, outside darts, low-cut back with back zipper closing, back slit and mid-knee length; dress A has purchased belt; dress B has belt with bow.

Pattern Sizing: 4 - 18, I cut the size 14.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it does!

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy enough that a beginner could handle this project with ease.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? When I first saw this pattern, I thought, "Meh, another sheath dress. But the pleats are interesting." But then, I looked at the technical drawing and say the back and was sold!

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added about 3 inches to the hem. Had it not been for the length of this dress, I would have been able to sew this straight out of the envelope.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Doubtful that I'll sew this again, but I do recommend it.

Conclusion: I think this dress is very flattering and the low-cut back is downright sexy!
