Pattern Critique: I'm not sure what drew me to this pattern. It is that loose & shape hiding style I am usually drawn to, but this one is not particularly......cute or even remotely stylish. The pattern cover is even bland, but I just had to make it. Maybe it was the pockets....
As it looks, it is really easy. It's your basic front, back, neck facings and sleeves - which were put in flat. I have never used a pattern that called for attaching the sleeve flat. There is topstitching down the front center seam and on the pockets. It was fun to make.
Fabric: Walmart $1 special satin-back stretch crepe. Rayon thread for topstitching.
Modifications: none for fit since this was a sack. I didn't hem the dress because I was afraid of that rounded hem, so I just serged it with pretty, shiny threads in the loopers.
Results: I don't know. I don't like the way the shoulder seam hangs, it makes my shoulders look broader. I looked closer at the pattern and that's how it should fit. Kiddo says I look like a doctor, and I probably do. Of course it is comfy. I'll wear it today & see how I feel.
Last call & reminder about the free patterns: Make sure you send me an email! I have confirmed about 5 requests so far. I think there may a couple of people who didn't email me yet. I'm mailing them out tomorrow only.
