B5147

B5147 complete and already worn last weekend.
Here's the info:
Pattern Description: Easy/ Misses/Misses Petite jacket, top, dress and skirt. I made the dress View D. A-line dress has front and back darts, back zipper and mid-calf length. All garments are lined.
Pattern Sizing: Multi-sized 8-24
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to folllow? I did not use the guidesheet.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the simplicity of this pattern and that I kept seeing it on other blogs. Seems like they were all having fun with this pattern so I decided to finally buy one for myself.
Fabric used: A polyester print from Joann's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: This pattern calls for lining, but I did not want to line this dress. I traced facings for the neck opening and armholes using the pattern as a guide.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Most definitely will be sewing this again and I do recommend to others.
Conclusion: I think this is a great pattern. Don't know why I didn't buy this sooner, LOL!
This coming Friday, August 20th, I'll be participating in the Friday Night Sew In. It's a virtual sew-in I read about on someone's blog after the last one which took place in July. It sounds like everybody had a fun time. So that's what I'll be doing Friday night.
Also, I just want to take a moment and thank all of those who follow or just stop by and read my blog compliment my work. Thank you.
