Size 10, though with the stretch jersey, probably should have gone smaller.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Generally, yes; though upon exclusion of the zipper, alteration of the bodice and lining for fit was an interesting challenge.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Great fit with the jersey though not particularly excited about the overall look of the polka dots; seems a bit country bumpkin. Also, the trapezoid insert/center was a tricky to get even, especially after some alterations.
2-way stretch knit jersey; white polka dots on blue background.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Combined view A top/bodice with view C skirt. Added a bit of gathering to the top of the sleeve. Using jersey eliminated the need for a zipper.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew again, only with a different color and maybe so gathered lace or trim instead of the ruffles.
