Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Very similar fabric to one of the fabrics of one of the drawings on the pattern although I made a short version of the sleveless dress and my fabric is a "negative view of the fabric on the envelope.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes very easy, easy to sew. No difficult techniques other than sew in the ditch where you just have to sew slowly.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Fabric Used: A nice 100% cotton batik which is fairly thick and cool to the touch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: FBA and wider at the hips. I have a little less ease for the front center panel as I had completed my FBA and forgot to add some width to the bottom front panel which in my case is only barely pleated.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have plans to sew a top with the same pattern.
Conclusion: A nice pattern for a confortable top or dress. I like the look and finish of the sleveless dress with single bias tape.
