1940s "Swing" Dress - Pattern Review

Pattern: 1940s "Swing" Dress Pattern from Sense and Sensibility Patterns

Pattern Description: The dress has a unique yoke with gathered shoulders, two sleeve options (short and “bracelet-length”), and gored skirt.

Pattern Sizing: 8-26 (I made a 10)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Easy as pie once you figure out how to sew the shoulder seam. And if you make more than one dress. =)

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing. I love all of Sense and Sensibility patterns. As a side note, this pattern is drafted for a long-waist-ed gal. This is no problem for me as I'm long-waist-ed. Makes it that much easier to sew for me. :)

Fabric Used: Simply Silky (polyester) from Joann Fabrics.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Nope.

Would you sew it again? Yes!

Would you recommend it to others? Yes!
