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? When I first saw this pattern I liked everything except for the sleeves. Because I prefer 3/4 length sleeves. But after seeing the many reviews of this pattern, I liked the way the sleeves looked. So I decided to try it and now I'm really liking the sleeves.
Fabric Used:ITY Jersey from G Street
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lined the skirt and narrowed the sleeve cuffs.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I may sew this again if I find the right fabric. But I do recommend it. It come together very quickly.
Conclusion: I'm OK with the dress overall but I prefer McCall 5974 the Perfect Knit Dress. I think 5974 is much more flattering for my body type. If I was to make this again I may change the skirt to add little gathers/pleats to hide the tummy area but the front ties are working for now. I'm not happy with my fabric choice, Although I love the fabric, I wished I would have saved it for another dress style. Sometimes when I look at it I see "silk bathrobe" LOL!! Come on. I know I'm not the only one!
