Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the different options available. I dislike the bodice fit.
Fabric Used: I used a Polyester Georgette and a Polyester Satin as the lining because the Georgette was see through.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: As I mentioned above because I used a fabric that needed a lining for the entire dress I had to line both the bodice, as well as, the skirt. I also liked view A without the band outlining the top of the bodice. So, I made view A minus the band.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would make it again. I do recommend others to make this pattern due to the ease of the process but I would pay close attention to the sizing of the bodice.
Conclusion: I've made this dress twice. The dress in this review was the first one that I made. I finished it and tried it on, only to have about a three inch gap on the side under the arm of the bodice. So, I had to remove the zipper and re-do the lining to adjust the fit. I adjusted the fit and actually made it a bit snug but I decided not to touch it again. I'm glad that I didn't adjust it again because it was fine when I wore it out for the first time.
