DIY Dress & Pattern Review B5950

Happy Monday Darlings,

Today is a glorious day and I have a lunch date with my daughter. We are going to eat and watch a matinee showing of Captain Phillips. I am also truly in love with my metallic dress! THIS FABRIC is just amazing and feels so good on. The metallic foil print is soft and stretches nicely. If you purchase the fabric HERE make sure to use my coupon code “mimi10”

Pattern: B5950

Fabric Used: ITY Foil Print purchased HERE It is so fab and drapes like a dream. Make sure you use my coupon! “MIMI10”

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope when you were done? Yep

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a pretty quick and easy dress to sew up. The instructions are clear and basic.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the style of the dress and I knew it would look great in my fabric. Simple pattern for a stand out fabric. I did not use elastic in the waist as they suggested and just inserted the zipper. The fabric is a stretch knit but there is a waistline seam so pulling it on is not an option.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None other then my usual grading down, the pattern has a lot of ease.

Would you sew it again? Yes I think I may do it again at some point.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes 😉
