I fell in love with the flowing photo on this envelope packet a few years back. I have had this pattern which seems like forever and finally I cut it, it sat for about 2 weeks, as I searched my stash for the perfect fabric. I shop my stash a lot, it’s a large stash and I am trying my best to sew it down. So far it’s working. I think because it doesn’t all fit in my sewing space anymore.
I did have to adjust the bodice, so that there wouldn’t be any accidents of anything falling out the front. Overall I love the outcome. I did not add the shoulder ties or the back neck tie. It would have been easy to add bought, but it was a personal choice for me.
Pattern Description: Misses’ Dresses and Belt
Pattern Size: 8-16
Did it look like the photo on the envelope? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow: Yes
What did you like or dislike about the pattern: I liked that it was easy to follow and the dress fit.
Fabric Used: ITY Tie Dye Knit from Michael Levine’s in Los Angeles, CA
Pattern Alterations: I did not add the shoulder or the back neck tie, personal choice, and I had to cut off 4″ from the length. As you can see I am not very tall.
Would you make this again? Yes, I plan to in a solid color.
Would you recommend this pattern to others to sew? Yes
Conclusion: A great pattern for such a simple, but classy maxi.
