About a week ago I tricked my non sewing sister into stopping by Hnacocks with me to "pick up a few things" after our weekly lunch date. They were having a pattern sale and my sister spotted this and I had to have it. I loved the collar and the shoulder princess seams.
Pattern Description: Inspired by Project Runway.
Misses'/miss petite dress sewing pattern with slim or flared skirt.
Pattern Sizing: 12-14-16-18-20
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the collar and loved the princess seams.Fabric Used: Grey wool woven. Dont remember where it came from!!!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I always do an FBA. I did a 1 and 3/4 inch FBA. I also added 1 and 1/2 inches to the front and back bodice pieces at the lengthen/shorten lines. I added 3 inches to the skirt length, but next time I will add another 3 inches as I like my skirts a little longer. I used the cap sleeve, but I added 4 inches in length and I also added a sleeve band. I also did a full lining and used an invisible zipper.
Would you sew it again?
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I really like the way this turned out and I will make it again someday.
Great pattern that is stylish and easy to alter.


  1. Gorgeous dress and you look fab... the shoes are fierce.

  2. Beautiful dress! This pattern's going on my list for the next sale!
