Pattern Sizing: Petite sizes 17-21 (Thanks lakaribane!)
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? Actually, this time they were
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the insert panels on the bodice. The V-neck is not too low. I made this dress for work and it is quite respectable. Side zipper. Pockets!!
Fabric Used: Yellow Ponte knit from Fabric Mart
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: All alterations were made to suit my body. The rather long list: Broad back, small bust, shoulder slope adjustment, swayback. I always feel like such a freak when I have to list them all out, but I assure you, the pattern is fine.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely. I think Burda did this pattern a great disservice by showing it in black. It has really nice details that show nicely in a solid color.
Conclusion: Great dress for work or a special occasion with the right fabric.
