Pattern Description: Pullover dresses have neckline variations, semi-fitted front, gathered, back-darted bodice, self-lined midriff, gathered or pleated skirt and side zipper.

Pattern Sizing: 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14. I made size 10.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! I really liked the gathering and ruffles.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. As with any pattern, if I was confused on one step, I looked at the next one to make sense of the one that confused me.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This isn't too much of a dislike, but there was plenty of slip-stitching involved (had to do it for the collar, midriff, and bands).

Fabric Used: Fashion 100% Cotton Fabric (Eyelet Flowers Blue) from Jo-Ann. The individual yarns in this fabric aren't held tightly together. As a result, I managed to pull some yarns out of place with ease while hand-sewing. I will not use this fabric again.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew this again but with a different fabric. I highly recommend this pattern to others.

Conclusion: It turned out very cute and well-fitting for me. I'm very happy with this dress.

Thanks for the review. Looks very pretty though, in spite of the problem with the fabric. Glad to know about that; I looked at that fabric too.
