Though a little bit, well really 70s, I saw this and thought it looked quite cute. (and ridiculously easy to make). It was probably one of the fastest dresses I've ever sewn, I finished it in a few hours and only had to work on it one day. So I would say the pattern really is a "jiffy".
I made it out of a really soft jersey material.
I will say I have some regrets with the dress, but not necessarily with the pattern. I chose to make it out of this deep purple color. In the end it was not a flattering color on me, I should have made it out of something bright like the yellow color used in the picture. It sort of looks like a witch costume in the deep purple color.
(I think on someone with darker coloring it would not be the case)
The dress or top with low round neckline and long raglan sleeves gathered with elastic casings has self fabric tie belt wrapped and tied in front.
The pattern comes in Small, Medium, and Large. I made the small.(only one per envelope) I thought this was interesting, I had never seen a pattern with sizes like that before. I suppose its like that because it ties to fit in the front.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yes, though I had some issues around the shoulder area.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very, easy and very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really liked how simple it was, it had in interesting way of putting the sleeves in. I didn't dislike anything about it. I also liked how there were only 3 pattern pieces.
Jersey, I found it draped quite nicely and went well with the dress.
But when my friend saw it she said to press more :(. I pressed and pressed but the hem and waist tie wouldn't lie flat. Any tips for this?
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
none, no need for it really.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would like to sew this again in a different color. Yes I would recommend it to others.
A really easy, fun to make dress but best made in a bright color. Could easily be a 1 day project. I think it would be an awesome project if you were going to a 70s party. Would look especially cool with a ~groovy~ print.
