Fabric:Polyester Knit  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: Lined dress

Pattern Sizing: UK size 14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. The model on the envelope is standing oddly

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I liked that that the dress was easy to construct. It was the lining that took up a lot of time but I'm glad I stuck with it.

Fabric Used: Polyester knit, I think. It was in the 'wool' section of the fabric store.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I went for the sleeveless option.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes, and I will be more patient the next time.

Conclusion: A great dress for beginners and for those wanting to learn how to line a dress.

Your dress is beautifulůmuch more beautiful than the picture on the pattern. They should use your garment for advertisement! It looks so lovely.
