Spot on Fabric

Fabric Used: 13/4 yards 60"
Pattern Description: Butterick 5190 is a sleeveless dress, top, jacket, and pant pattern.
Pattern Sizing: 8-24
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were finished sewing it? Yes, but with sleeves.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love this pattern because it doesn't require a lot of fabric and it is a very simple pattern. There is nothing that I dislike about it.
Fabric Used: ITY knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I goofed on the alterations and didn't alter the bodice. Sleeves from another Butterick pattern.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes
Conclusion: This time I goofed! I forgot to decrease the bodice to a size 14 which made the dress too large. We discussed wearing a jacket with it until we can make the alterations.
Strolling through the patterns, I spotted this Vogue 8825 with the model wearing a duplication of ITY fabric which I had purchased.
There is different wrap dress planned from the same fabric for another special person.

This is a beautiful print, and I'm glad you have worked out a way to wear the dress until you have time for the alterations :)

Thanks ladies. I can't wait to complete the wrap dress in the same print.
