Pattern Description: Dress with elastic neckline and waistline.

Pattern Sizing: size 10

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? Very simple

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I had to try this pattern because of all the wonderful reviews and it flatters every figure type.

Fabric Used: Novelty Knit from Joann's.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added length to the bodice and skirt due to many other reviews saying that the pattern was short waisted and needed extra length in the skirt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably will make it again in another knit because it was an easy quick dress that's really comfortable and flattering on.

Conclusion: I concur with ALL the multitudes of other reviewers that this pattern is a WINNER!!
