|Pattern Description: |
Misses' close-fittting, pullover straight dress, has neckline, sleeve and length variations with optional side slits.

size 14 for bodice and sleeves;
size 12 for waist;
size 16 for hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the simplicity of the dress and how fast and easy it was to put all the pieces together.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I usually sew size 12, but with this pattern, I sewed the sleeves and bodice in size 14.
I graded down to 12 for the waist and graded up to 16 for the hips.
I made changes for a more A-line dress.
I added self slim ties to the side seams. They are long enough to go completely around the waist.
I made the dress 5 1/2" shorter.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I might sew it again and try out the other neckline variations.
I would recommend this pattern to others, since it was very easy and fast to construct.
Simple project with nice results.
There are many options of neckline, sleeves and dress length in the pattern so that different looks can be made.
