Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were pretty easy to follow up until I got to the lining. It was kind of confusing of where I needed to sew, especially when it came to the panties.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it was a swimdress. Swimdress patterns are really hard to come by these day. I also like that majority of the instructions were really easy to understand.
I disliked how they instructed to do the lining. Maybe it because I'm still just a beginner but I felt like it would have been easier to construct the lining and put it on the fabric first before doing anything else. I've sewn patterns that have done this before and it's much easier that way.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
