Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
2. Used a coverstitch machine on hems
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I won't make another, but it is super cute and comfy to wear. Love the pattern. Make a quick muslin or fit the tissue to the bust area. I did a "good" FBA on this one. I also would make a note of folding your knit fabric the same way as the pleats BEFORE you cut out the dress. My fabric was firm enough to hold the pleats, but the pleats are shallow and would show up better if there was more fabric in the pleat.
Conclusion: great holiday dress to wear with boots (even though it is almost 80 degrees in south Texas!)
