Current Tags What is a Tag:
As you can see, I LOVE this pattern. This is the 3rd time I've made it - first time in the longer length and it's great!! I got a lot of compliments. I can't stress this NEED this pattern!

Pattern Description:
Slightly flared, mid-knee or evening length dress has close-fitting, lined sleeveless bodice, neck band, raised waist seam, front and back pleats, side seam pockets and back zipper.
Pattern Sizing:
6-12, 14-20
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?
It's a nice style...I need empire waist dresses.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added darts to the bust to make it fitted and omitted the pockets. I also lined the skirt due to the sheerness of the fabric.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't think so...this is my second time making it. I do recommend it.
