Pattern Sizing: I don't know if it was due to me taking poor measurements in the first place but this dress ended up being HUGE on me. I ended up having to take in about an inch from the sides and 2 or 3 inches from the back. So I'm tempted to say that it runs big but again, maybe I just was really off on my measurements.
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
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the peter pan collar, but I disliked that it was only the front part of the collar and not the back. That made the whole collar look sort of tacky in my opinion, so I added a back collar using the back facing pattern pieces.
Fabric Used: Lace, with a soft satin underlayer.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a back collar (though if I were to do it again I would draft an entirely new collar piece because my collar had seams on the shoulders due to me sort of doing a last minute job (read: crappy job) ha, but it worked and no one notices except for me so that's all I care about. I also changed the skirt on the dress, I didn't want it to be form fitting so I did a gathered waist skirt instead.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes!
