Pattern Sizing: 8-12, I used a 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, except for the sleeves which I changed.
Were the instructions easy to follow? yes! they were very well written.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? So many nice details, the covered shoulder seam, the gathered inset with piping, the cut and shaping is great! I love the finish too, it fits well and I feel pretty when I wear it.
Fabric Used: Swiss Dot cotton Lawn
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made the hem straight, I wasn't sure if I liked the curved hem. I also changed the sleeve, I drafted a tulip sleeve instead. I didn't think the original sleeve would look good in my fabric. I also don't like puffy sleeves. Read more about it on my blog
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I am planning another one right now
Conclusion: Love it- great summer dress! this is my first item for the mini wardrobe contest.
