Fitted A-line dress, above mid-knee, has neckline variations and back darts and zipper, with or without pockets. I made variation B and included the pockets. Pattern Sizing: I made a 10, because it was an pattern from my collection and there was only 6-8-10
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? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the cut and the simplicity of the dress. It is flattering as it has shape but isn't tight. The sleeves were a little snugger than i would have liked so next time I would make those bigger.
Fabric Used: Cotton pique from my stash but I think it is from Fabricland.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I sewed smaller seams (1/4 inch instead of 5/3) all around because I would have normally made a 12 (probably a 10 shoulder but 12 waist and sleeve at the very least)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes, although it is now a vintage pattern. Conclusion: I like this dress and it was easy to sew.
