Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instruction was easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I needed an evening dress and I had not so much time to make it. This pattern was interesting and easy to follow. As it is evening long dress it was a lot of fabric to sew...
Fabric Used:
Satin + lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Well, I have made no alterations.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It is very nice dress and I will wear it with pleasure next time.
Conclusion:
It is very interesting dress with nice draped front neckline and pleated insert. It has small tran at the back which caused a little issue during a ball - from time to time I could not move as somone step on it :-D
I still need to take some good photo of this dress ...

I've been looking for a pattern that combines side ruching and front cowl or drape. I think this may be that pattern! Your work is lovely and yes, bring on more pictures.
