This is a post a year in the making. Last summer my go to dress was the Sew Liberated Metamorphic Dress. I lived in it and have even worn it a lot layered this winter.
The dress is a sleeveless dress with a gathered skirt which is reversible. One layer has a curved hem and the other is straight across. I loved the first one so much I made a second.
The pattern comes in sizes 0 – 24 and I made a size 22 bodice with a size 24 skirt.
In my first version I used a dark grey cotton slub and black rayon. In my second version I used an Art Gallery Voile with a Navy Rayon. I used about 2 metres of each fabric and still had some leftovers.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. There aren’t a lot of pieces to it and it was as imagined. I may consider making a longer version.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Super easy to follow. The two dresses are joined at the bodice using the burrito method and it was the first time I had used the method and it came up a treat. There is also a YouTube Video to help visual learners here.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved how easy it is to style and how you can dress it up or down. All of Meg from Sew Liberated’s pieces are designed to mix and match and layer.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut the straps and neckline as an 18 to accommodate a hollow chest and it worked a treat.
I would potentially lengthen the skirt a little more.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I have and I will.
Other great versions can be found at?
