Well, this weekend it was a pattern by Cynthia Rowley. A simple dress that I thought I could have fun with. Boy was I wrong. Here's the pattern review:
Overall Rating: D
-Directions for adding pockets was like trying to read minds.
-Unclear references and bad pictures led to a busy seam-ripper
-Installing the zipper per instructions was a nightmare.
-Sizing was completely off
-Darts don't bring in enough fabric.
This pattern led me to the point of desperation for my very own dress form! What a headache that would have saved me.
Sew at your own risk with this pattern! And let's hope next weekend will be much more fun.
