Pattern: B5211 view A
Description: Dress with back neck opening with button extended shoulders and top stitching details.
Pattern Sizing: 8-14 I cut a size 14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it did with a couple of changes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow.
Fabric Used: A mutl-color fabric that I have had for some time in my stash. I thought it was very retro.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I did like it another quick pattern for the summer.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I did a couple of things. I took in the neck so the shoulders are not so extended. I did a top stitch on the pockets too. I closed up the back and removed the button and I took in the sides about an inch. I wanted it fitted in the waist area and less of a box shape. This will be great in denim.
Would you sew it again? Yes.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes.
