Pattern Description: Simplicity 1650 Dress

Pattern Sizing: Size 10

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes very close

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy to follow

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern is very easy to manipulate and follow.

Fabric Used: Lace

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I adjusted the bust size, I'm a little bigger than the pattern size 10.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this pattern again trying a different fabric choice.

Conclusion: Its a very easy project that I will be trying again using different fabric. I love experimenting on fabrics. I used View A but View B peplum.
