Today was a chance to wear the latest dress I made using M6553, It is a super comfy dress to wear and so cute!
Here is my result!
Pattern Description: Very loose-fitting, pullover dress has princess seams, self-lined yoke back, side openings for self belt, back pleats/ neck slit with button/thread loop closing, and shaped hemline.
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6
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? They were pretty simple but if I make it again I will use RTW construction methods because she of the steps can be done better.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I was curious to see how the dress looked made up aside from the photo of the model on the envelope so I went ahead an made it and love it, it is so comfy and cute and the shaped hemline is really nice.
Fabric Used: I used a dress weight red gabardine
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn’t make any but if I make it again I will remove the pleat in the back because I didn’t like it after I made it and will replace it with gathers.
Would you sew it again? I might in a jersey for a casual look.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes!
I love the way it looks from the side!

I am going to change the yoke method on this pattern if I make it again, I also hate the pleat and would rather it have gathers.
