1:00 AM

Project Details:

Pattern: Butterick 5352

Description: Pullover A-line dress, above mid-knee length, has lined, fitted bodice, tucks at neck, pleated front and stitched hem, cut-in armholes give halter effect.

Pattern Sizing: 6 - 20, 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 fairly easy. just be careful when making the tucks on the bodice and the skirt.

Fabric Used: Matte Jersey.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style of this dress. This is another of those dresses that look like a halter from the front, but provide full coverage in the back.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added about 3 inches to the hem. No FBA was needed because it's a knit. 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.
