Vogue 1151 - Little Black Dress10:45 PM
Pattern: Vogue 1151 - Cynthia Steffe
Notions: 18" Metal Zipper
Pattern Sizing: 4 - 18, I cut the 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes (with the exception of the additional length).
Fabric: Ponteroma Knit
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made a small FBA, added 1" to the hipline and SIX INCHES to the length, because this baby would have been scandalous without it!
Zipper Close Up
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No, I will not sew it again... so many dresses, so little time. But I do recommend it. This was a quick sew that only took a few hours from cut to finish.
Conclusion: This is a fabulous little dress that is so trendy and cute. I don't think it would be as special without the exposed zipper.
