This will be a really quick pattern review! I’ve been looking for a pattern that had a really deep plunging neckline. I just love that look ! This pattern was absolutely perfect for that!! The bodice (top) is fully lined so I did not need to wear a bra – which is always great 😀
I have finally decided to review one of the many PDFS patterns I have purchased in my short time sewing ! I must say I am beginning to love them a lot more than than commercial patterns ! (You know Mccalls, Simplicity Butterick etc).
I love that I have the ability to print them out at FedEx, which means sturdier paper ! I love that many of the styles are up to date and the pattern sizing is usually aligned with RTW(ready to wear) unlike the previously mentioned companies.
This pattern is pretty quick and easy to make. I really enjoyed designing this style dress. I decided to go with the low back and the Scoop neck. I plan on making this dress again as well as the body suit version 😍😍 I’m so excited about spring !

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Absolutely !
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy to follow. i made the body suit when I first began sewing over a year ago. So it is definitely great for a newbie(which I still am lol) 😊
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved everything about this pattern!! I really love the fact that one pattern can give you so many different looks !
Fabric Used: Scuba Knit from fabric.com
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: It fit perfectly. I didn’t need to adjust a thing 😍🙌 I plan to make quite a few of these in different styles.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely 😀
