Pattern Description:
Misses' dress with neckline and sleeve variations. New Look sewing pattern
Pattern Sizing:
I cut size 12 for the bodice grading out to size 14 in the waist and hips. I probably could have cut a 10 and graded out to 12.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I really didn't use the instructions so I can't say. But the pattern went together very easily.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the overall simplicity of the dress. I needed a pattern with a waist seam to use with my border print.

Fabric Used:
Michael Miller cotton border print.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added two inches to the length of the skirt and omitted the embellishments on the waistband. I fully lined the dress but also used the front facing piece.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might use this pattern again. I really like View D.

Dress looks fantastic, I also have this pattern - do you think it would work with stretch crepe de chine?
