Were the instructions easy to follow?
The BurdaStyle instructions are improving. They are making them a little easier to understand. Although they don't have all the step by step pictures other sewing companies have. I knew what to do for the front slit from the Burdastyle Tie Top that I previously did. There is a front slit tutorial that will help make this one.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it was really simple you could just throw it on. I didn't make my front slit as large at the pattern dress shown on their site. I still have to wear a small singlet underneath though which I think is the intention of their version (I am hoping anyway lol). I put my elastic waist a bit further down on my bum otherwise it would have made my hips looks huge due to my body shape.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The front slit was made smaller, I added length to make it a long dress (probably not long enough though due to the waste band pulling the dress skirt up), and also added the sleeves. The little sleeves were included in the pattern though so I thought why not!
I am pretty sure it was a size 40.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would probably do another version but just keep it the knee length.
