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?I thought the instructions were good. It's a pretty easy pattern though. I tend to not look at them much, sorry.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love anything with this neckline. I liked the high/low hemline a lot. I'm always on the lookout for nice patterns for wovens.
Fabric Used:I think it's a Rayon Challis. It was from FabricMart.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I made no alterations. This is a size Large straight out of the pattern. I usually make a size smaller in the shoulders and should have in this. Next time I make it, I will shorten the shoulders (the armcyes are binding me a bit) and then lengthen the bodice to cover my bust. I am very short waisted but large busted.
Also, I used french seams throughout the dress. I made a Vogue 1247 which used them recently and fell in love with french seams. They look so nice and add stability for the lighterweight fabrics. They really don't add much work in my opinion and are totally worth it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, I am definitely sewing this again. Maybe not right away but this is a very nice pattern. I'd love to try the other version but make wider straps.
Conclusion: Really nice pattern
