SIMPLICITY PATTERN 3859 REVIEW
I decided to write my first pattern review. A lot of blogs I follow share reviews of sewing patterns they’ve sewn so I thought maybe I’d start doing that. So instead of just posting pics of what I’ve made now I’ll be adding a review along with it. Hope they are helpful.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very easy. It took about 2 1/2 hours total. A great pattern to start and finish during your kids nap time. It’s a very quick and simple pattern. A great pattern for fun cotton prints.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I preferred the V neck dress as opposed to the thin straps, but that is just my preference.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Cut a four in width and a five in length. Seemed a bit short for my daughter if I had cut the length at a four.
Instead of adding ribbon around the waste I sewed strips of contrasting fabric to the bodice before sewing on the skirt.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I made four dresses.
The shorter dress looks great with capri leggings.
