Happy Sunday to you. Today was a beautiful spring morning. The weather was nice, and I decided to wear a dress that I actually made a few months back.
The dress is Simplicity A6341. It was a very simple dress to make. The review is below!
Pattern Description: Simplicity New Look A6341
Pattern Sizing:US 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did. I think the print of the fabric makes the dress more noticeable.
Were the instructions easy to follow?The instructions were pretty easy to follow. It was also my first time attaching a lining to the bodice. I usually try to avoid any patterns with lining. I feel I am wasting time since it feels like I am cutting out 2 garments instead of one.**rant over**
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the knife pleats, but I think that box pleats would also work as well with this pattern.
Fabric Used: Ankara, 100% cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made no changes to the pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would sew it again.
This pattern is very simple. I think that a beginner would find no trouble at all. The pattern does call for a lining to the bodice, but I don’t believe it would be necessary. If I sew it again, I don’t think that I would use a lining.
