Hey all you cool cats and kittens 😂😉 today on the blog is a dress that I honestly have been dying to make. Only reason I say that is because I absolutely love this pattern and finally got the perfect fabric to make it with. So let’s get down to the review!
Wrap front dress, self-tie, sash or button front. Short and ¾ full sleeves, A: double ruffle hemline.
6-14. I cut a size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
What I love the most about this pattern is the fact that it’s a true wrap dress. What I didn’t like was how short the dress was. Along the front skirt wrap piece, it was cut very high into my crotch area. It wasn’t noticeable, but I was a little too high for my comfort. Next time, I’ll hack the pattern so I can make that particular piece longer to my liking.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Instead of gathering the ruffles, I did pleats. Gathering on my machine is a nightmare (don’t know why) but I refuse to gather, I’ll do pleats lol.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Overall, it’s a very nice pattern. There are some minor details in this dress, that in my opinion were unnecessarily tedious, but I didn’t make the entire look of the dress.
