Review: Vogue 1025
Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, lined dress is 2" below mid-knee, with center pleats, back vent, invisible zipper and purchased belt.
Pattern Sizing:6-22. I used a 16 instead of my usual 14 thinking it would be too clingy & I was WRONG.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, kinda
Were the instructions easy to follow? decent instructions I mostly used the pictures
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I was attracted to this one becuase I thought the midriff pleating would give me some shape. again I was WRONG. I thought the knee length was a classy look as well.
Fabric Used: cotton poly interlock
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: my lining ended up off grain and I had to scrap it. instead of lining I made neck facings from the interfacing pieces and did a narrow topstitch around the neck to tack it down and a narrow hem on the sleeves and it worked out fine. no zip since my sizing was big and I was using a knit. in a woven you will def. need a zipper.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I kind of want to try a woven but I think this dress is all wrong for my shape. (im a cross between a rectangle & inverted triangle) I will move on.
Conclusion: not good for me. giving it to my sister, who has hips.
