Pattern Description: This is OOP Fast & Easy B5180
A-lined, above mid-knee with neckline, armhole & sleeve variations, back zipper. View C is lined.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope one you were done sewing with it? My version has the sleeves from View B and the dress is View C.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, but I did not follow them. Which could be the reason I had the back facing piece left, lol! I think I may have cut it out by mistake because I certainly did not use it since I lined the dress.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I've always look at this pattern and put it back every spring/summer and this time decided to make it.
Fabric used? I am not sure the exact name of this fabric. I have several pieces in various colors from Joann's clearance section. I have made pants, a suit, and now a dress. I think it's a rayon.
Pattern alterations or design changes you made: The only thing was I used View B sleeves but made the dress of View C.
Would you sew it again? Perhaps but the other view in a different fabric. Conclusion: I like this dress. I look forward to wearing it when the temperatures come out of the 90s.
Below are a few recent patterns I've purchased. Butterick is on sale this week at Joann's. I hope they have 5638 in stock. It seems to be a popular style.
