DIY Dress: Pattern Review of M5705 View E



Pattern Description: Short dresses have elastic casings at waist; dresses, E have long sleeves with elastic casings; dresses D, E have hemmed scoop neck finishes.

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 4

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? Yes, I have made this dress before but it somehow has gone missing and fortunately I had saved the remnant fabric and t was just enough to make another.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the sleeves and I love the scoop neck.

Fabric Used: Silk Jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None except shorten the hem by 1.5"

Would you sew it again? I might in a black Silk Jersey and turn it into a maxi.


Would you recommend it to others? Yes

Conclusion: Very easy dress to wear and really cute!



I wore it to work today with my leopard boots!

  4. Great dress in a great color. I agree...the scoop neckline is very lovely and I love the sleeves. I like how slim they look with the pooling at the bottom.

  6. Amazing color and fit. I pulled that very same pattern out a couple of weeks ago. I was planning on making one of the other views with the oversized cowl as a tunic. I just might give it a try after seeing yours.
