Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I followed some of them but for the most part, I applied the Islander Sewing Systems, Shirts, Etc! DVD instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I've never top stitched darts before so that was different. I removed the top stitching from the back darts because they caused the fabric to wrinkle in that area.
Fabric Used: Cotton Poplin Stretch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I only used one set of darts instead of the two set of darts for the front of the dress. Then I did my usual adjustments... I altered the shoulder area, shortened the torso area, and did a slight swayback adjustment. I also did not sew the belt ties.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, but I plan to sew a different style of shirt dress to see which one I like best.
Conclusion: I really like the way this dress turned out! Here are more pics:
