Pattern Description: Misses Dress or Day Gown

Pattern Sizing: size 6-16

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yep..

Were the instructions easy to follow?

I didnt use them since I have made this one previously

I love the style of this is my TNT maxidress pattern.

Fabric Used:

I was reading Ms. Sheila's blog and she had made her daughter a beautiful cotton skirt with this same fabric in a blue colorway...I loved that fabric and I inquired where she had gotten it and she replied that she found it at Joann's in the quilting facrics...So I went looking for that fabric and found it and this same fabric in this pink/green colorway and bought it with the intentions of this maxidress....Thanks Sheila!!!

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:

I lengthened the bodice front and back by 2 inches and also did an fba...added 2 inches to the lower length.

Would you sew this again: I'm sure this one will get sewn again!!!

Conclusion: Happy sewing!!!

Okay... I am admitting I have a shoe problem...I have a collection of shoes that numbers over 300...but now i need(want) a pair of red patent leather peep toes in a size 11...I made a zebra print dress that I want to wear to church Sunday, but I cant find the shoes!!!..nothing...zilch...nada...My sister and I went to the ellenton outlet and visited all our usual haunts..Nine West, (scored some new platform sandals there...yah!!!),Saks, and Aigner, but no red patent leather peep toes...I have been online for 1 week looking at all the online shoe stores to no avail...I should have bought the ones I saw lsat year at Target but I stupidly did I am paying for my mistake...
