Pattern Sizing: E5 (14-16-18-20-22)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, pretty much.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very clear and very easy to follow, particularly in following how to do a full lining (minus sleeves).
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This dress came together really well. It was easy to sew and I was really pleased with how it turned out. There really isn't anything I disliked about the pattern, but I didn't like how it ended up looking on me and I think I could have done a better job with fabric selection, given the style.
Fabric Used: Dark navy lightweight stretch denim from JoAnn's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I sewed a 16 top and 18 bottom. I lengthened the sleeves, the bodice and the skirt all by 1 inch. I skipped the collar and, because of how it looked after getting the lining in, I didn't bother hemming or finishing the sleeves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No, I won't sew it again. It's a good pattern, but this style does not work for me. There are many other pattern options for wrap dresses using lightweight fabric that are unlined - and if I want to sew another lined dress, it won't be a wrap style.
Conclusion: This is a good pattern, but it did not work for me.
