Pattern Review, Simplicity 2219


  Pattern Description: Misses' knit dress in two lengths 


Pattern Sizing: 6 to 22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, but I changed the bodice.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the fullest of the skirt of the dress. I disliked the low cut front of the bodice.

Fabric Used: A polyester pink and white chevron printed knit and the front is a small cotton ribbed knit. 


Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I changed the front of the dress by adding a panel of a different color. I also changed the bodice as well, actually using the back as the front too. I added the front panel because the pink fabric was a remnant, so the design started evolving on.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, but next time I will actually make the dress as is and probably in the shorter version. I also recommend it to others.

Conclusion: This dress was very easy to make. The issues I had were with the bodice, mostly due to me making the back the front. The shift was not hard, the side panels had to be eased into the front. I would make my version again!
