|Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?|
Yes, except for the areas I made modifications.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I stumbled through the adding the black accent/facing. I kept re-reading and re-trying and got through it, but I definitely admit to struggling on that part.
Soft, stretchy knit. In fact, I did not need to add a zipper. (And because i was using knit fabric, I did not use the interfacing the pattern called for.)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I put in a modesty panel. I don't know how I could have worn the dress without one! Also, based on other reviewers' comments and my own failure to do it correctly, I changed the back accent piece to go straight across, rather than come down in a point. It was easier. However, now that I have seen pictures of me in the dress from the backside, I think the designer put that downward point in to make it slimming and to break up the eye line. If you can get it to match, I think doing the point would look nicer.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes. Difficult as it was, it fits like a dream! I don't know how many I can make with the accent a different color, but if I made it in an all-print or all-solid I think the dresses would look different enough that no one would be able to tell it was the same pattern.
Very figure flattering! Worth the effort!
