yest
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love this pattern I made one for be and two for my daughter
Fabric Used:
brocade, Satin and lace
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made the center part the same color and the bottom and added bows down the front and on the sleeves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes it is a very cute pattern. attaching the skirt with the peplums it very difficult if you have a very heavy material. I would suggest if you add the peplums that either the skirt of the peplums is a thin material so your needle can do through the skirt and attach easily to the bodice.
