New Look 6885
Pattern Sizing: 8-18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I had hoped it would have more cleavage coverage, but no dice.
Fabric Used: Linen blend
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I wish I had realized how fitted the top would be over my bust and how low cut it would end up being. If I had realized this, I probably would have made the bodice longer and the straps shorter. Too late now.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No, I like this dress, but I always have to wear it with a scarf or something because of how low cut it ended up being. It was one of my first adventures with a sewing pattern, so I just didn't have the knowledge at the time to know that it wasn't going to look the way I had hoped.
Conclusion: Not a pattern I would use again, but it's a really cute shape and would probably be good for someone who is smaller chested.
