Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?It does. I followed instructions, except for the darts which I sewed traditionally.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Good instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Lots of details that makes makes the pattern looking very much like good quality ready to wear.
Fabric Used:Nice cotton batik remnant. Nice and cool.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I sewed a 16 for the shoulders and enlarged to a 22 for the lower bodice. It prevented me from having to do a FBA to the D cup. I only needed to add length above the waist. I had sewn a muslin ahead of time and it allowed me to fine tune the bodice.
I recommend this pattern highly. Lots of details and therefore a little more work but well worth it.
Conclusion: Lovely dress to wear in the summer with a comfortable skirt. Nice shape around the arms.
