Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:This was a bridesmaid's dress, so there were a few modifications. The bride wanted a cap type sleeve added similar to her dress, so a pattern piece was drafted and just sewn in place. The bridesmaids all wore a colored sash and bow in the back. I also used an invisible zipper instead of a regular one called for in the pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?My daughter really liked this dress, so if the occasion arose that she needed a formal dress, we'd consider using this again.
Conclusion: Be sure to fit before final sewing - needs to be quite snug in the bodice.
