I think this is a really great pattern, and from other's versions I think it suits most body-types. I have chosen to make a fairly loose version suitable for work. So I cut a size 14 (I'm a 37.5" bust 28 waist and 37 hip). You could make a sexy version by making it a bit tighter, or choose a glamorous fabric. I think it needs a firmish fabric though.
I raised the waist by 1" and added 1.5" to the length (I'm 5'4") I narrowed the shoulders by 6/8". I didn't turn over the neckline as advised but fitted a neck and. I've just made a small swayback adjustment for the next time (and there will be more), you can see below there is a little too much fabric at the back. In order to accommodate shorter jacket sleeves I made this one 3/4 length.
The dress goes together really easily and is a great project for beginners to knits. I know a plain black ponte dress is a bit boring, but I have to be smart at work and it will be perfect with a number of my jackets, infact I'm considering wearing the outfit below for a very important work interview I have coming up.
Well that's the last for One week one pattern, and the most posts I have made in a week! Hope it wasn't too boring. Did you take part?
