Vogue 1552 | Sandra Betzina's Secret Sauce!

Pattern Review - Vogue 1552 Pattern Description: Sandra Betzina Semi-fitted pullover draped dress has collar and sleeves. Pattern Sizing: It's a one-size pattern with multiple sizes included--huge plus! Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, this is a great pattern. Sandra Betzina did a wonderful job on this. This is her secret sauce pattern! The image on the pattern is good, but it doesn't do it justice. Were the instructions easy to follow? Absolutely! After cutting it out, it comes together in less than 2 hours. It also uses the flat method to install the sleeve. I love that! What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the drape on the sides. I had hoped it would be flattering as I've also made a few tops with the same drape feature in the front. I love how flattering the dress is. Fabric Used: Rayon stretch knit - purchased at Joann's Pattern altera
