Yes, I know, I'm late as all heck jumping on this bandwagon, but I DON'T CARE.
I stumbled across the pattern for this in a local shop for like a dollar. I though it looked like a good buy--easy to sew and easy to wear. I was a little surprised that it required knit rather than woven fabric--the dress on the envelope looks woveny to me--but I have plenty of knits I haven't sewed up so I went on with it. I broke out this pretty print that had been in the stash for a long time and went to work.
It took me longer to put this together than most folks, although I made very few alterations. Actually, all I did was add to the skirt, grading out at the waist and hip. The bust point measurement for the size that I usually cut for an FBA actually matched me, so I decided to give it a chance.
The most difficult parts of this were the shoulders. I somehow don't have a loop turner (how?) and the tubes are so tiny, plus In the jersey they stretched. I gave up out of frustration and just stitched the long ends together and knotted the ends. Next time I'll do them properly. Also, the shoulders gathered a lot when I attached the elastic, but they flattened out when I attached the straps (which are stitched to the outside shoulder seams). In the end, they were ok.
The bust ended up fitting pretty well--I did find that once I removed the basting that held each section to each other that---well, I need to baste them back together for modesty.
I was surprised to find that it was actually floor-length on me! I dunno how more petite ladies deal. Also pleasant: the high waist hit at my waist.
I made the sash that comes with the pattern, but after trying it a few times I decided I prefer the dress without it. Next time I might do a wider sash, or completely go without.
I wore it to work with a cardigan. Except for the gaping top issue, it was very comfy! Definitely a Secret Pajamas sew.
