    Pattern Name/Number Nancy Dress
    Pattern Description
    Knit strapless dress/top or skirt with yoga-style waistband
    Which view and size did you make?
    Size small, as a skirt
    Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
    If not, why?
    The waistband of the skirt, or what would be the bodice of a dress, was way too small to make this practical as a dress/top. The instructions claim the pattern only requires one yard, but I don't see how one yard would give enough fabric for anything other than a skirt.
    Were the instructions easy to follow?
    If not, why?
    Once the "one yard isn't enough!" hurdle is overcome/disregarded, the skirt is easy to put together.
    What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
    See above about one yard not really being enough. But it is a free pattern (good!) and easy to make (also good!) and turns out to be a pretty cute skirt (good!).
    Fabric used
    nylon blend something or other from
    Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
    If I do this again (and I probably will if I can find a fabric I like), I won't use fabric with this slippery-ish texture. And if you plan to make this as a top or dress, you will almost certainly need more than a yard
    Would you sew this pattern again?
    Would you recommend this pattern to others?
