10:45 PM

Pattern: Vogue 1151 - Cynthia Steffe

Notions: 18" Metal Zipper

Description: Tapered, close-fitting dress, above mid-knee has slightly raised waist, princess seams, cut-a-way armholes, two-piece bias, turned back collar and exposed back 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.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I'm a fan of Shaun Kearney's designs for Cynthia Steffe, so I was excited that a couple were offered at Vogue Patterns.

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!

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.
