Dress or top with jewel neckline, draped and tied front. A surprisingly quick and easy-to-make sewing project with unique details.
Child (size 2 to 13 : 21 to 32 inches bust)
Women (XS to 2XL : 33 to 51 inches bust)
all in the same pattern, PDF with layers.
My measurements :
19 janv. 2020, 175 lbs, 5'3".
(41) 44-36-43 inches.
Size : The first I made was :
- a size AA (42,75 - 36,5 - 45,75 inches
- dolman version (sleeveless
- without ties
Organic Bamboo knit in white from Club Tissus (Brossard), 4 way stretch, more than 40% stretch each direction, a bit on the thin side...
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- Remove 0,75in at side seams, from hem tappered to nothing at notch. (probably the same as grading between sizes AA waist to BB at hips)
- Then, removed 3in from bottom
(Note that the hem ended up waving up because of the twist - HOW TO FIX?)
- TODO : finish neckline, sleeves and hem.
- NB : might still need a sway back adjustment?
|v1 : Pattern size AA - as is|
|Try to pin the excess at SS and fold up for length|
|Try it with jacket : shorten version wins!|
|v2 : Side seams taken in and hem shortened by 3in|
Yes (except wavy hem)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Very fast sew. I would have liked to see the bust and waist symbol.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I want to try a less flimsy fabric and I had ideas about how to make it reversible that I might try eventually... (since the fabric I bought for my next version is too flimsy, if I doubled it maybe it would be better? so might as well make it reversible!)
to be continued...
TODO : ADD PHOTO v3 FINISHED
(need to finish neckline, sleeve and hem)
