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 found them very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the great instructions and variety of garments in one envelope.
Fabric Used: Satin which was $1.00 metre at Spotlight a couple of years ago
also 30% of if you purchased the whole roll which I did so for $4.20 I got 6 metres of fabric. It has a really nice feel to it and is very drapy but is very difficult to work with. I used my clapper a lot.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't attach lace to the sleeves as I didn't have anything suitable and as this is for the fabric stash contest I am trying to make do with what I have on hand.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have sewn this before quite a few years ago as a gift for my DD2 and will probably sew this again. Also I would recommend it to others.
Conclusion: A nice pattern.
