Pattern Sizing: 8-18. I made a 16 (bust) graded to 12
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? Yes. Very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the pattern as a whole and if I had used a different fabric I would have loved the whole process. The only thin I didn't like was the placement of the ties. Instead of putting them that 1 inch to the back piece I put mine at the seam on the shoulders which made my neckline rise higher, but kept the V in the center.
Fabric Used: Poly Charmeuse
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: changed the tie placement. Nothing else.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes.
Conclusion: My experience with this particular charmeuse was an interesting one, but that does not take away from the fact that this is a nice pattern. It was an easy pattern and a relatively quick fix, again,,,choice of fabric makes the difference. I will make this dress again, but with a more pliable fabric. LOL
