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, and very well-written. I made adjustments as I went along, but I really need to start making changes to the pattern pieces *before* cutting the fabric. I was a just a *little*impatient, and figured this project would just "turn out". Sigh...always adjustments! I'll learn
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the simple design of this dress. I've always wanted to sew a tank dress. They're so flattering and nice and cool for summer.
Fabric Used: Cotton/polyester blend with some stretch. I just love the camouflage print of this fabric. I bought it some time ago at Fabricville and when I picked up this pattern I knew I wanted to make a tank-style dress with it
I like how they give you different options for binding the neckline.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I wish more patterns started smaller. I suppose I like garments more fitted though. If you just want your dress to skim, then you'll be happy with the fit of this dress without changing it. I originally was going to just sew this dress without darts, but decided to add them after trying it on. I had to deepen them even more so to get a better fit. I would have liked a center back seam too to help with fitting.
I found that the neckline was very low, at least on me. Since I had to shorten the straps though, it brought the neckline up a to a more appropriate height
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I do recommend this pattern and I will probably sew it again at some point. Its a great basic dress, that would look good with many different prints.
Conclusion: This pattern is anything but boring! I love my dress!
