Misses' Dress and Jumpsuit
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did. I made bodice A with pants B.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It is a not-baggy-jumpsuit, so it was a real must-have. And I am really pleased with how the suit turned out. I like the deep v-neck, the wide legs and the close-fitting midriff part.

Picture of the side
What I would do a bit different next time is the armholes. The front and back bodice aren't seamed, but they are overlapping. This means that the sides are open. My arm holes are a bit low at the moment, so I do need to wear something underneath. I will make the overlap a bit bigger next time, and maybe close the sides (partially). But other than that, I just love it.
It is a true fabric eater this one. I used 3 meters (150 cm wide, that is +/- 3.3 yard 60" wide) for the top layer. A black polyester I guess, with small punched flowers. The bottom layer is a very soft and comfortable rayon/cotton, I also used 3 meters (150 cm wide).
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added my usual inch to the bodice (bust level). And because of the punched flowers, I played with the seams. I didn't want them to be too visible through the holes so several seams are visible on the inside of the jumpsuit. Also the invisible zipper is visible on the inside, it is not between the in- and outside layer (as described).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I definitely will make the dress - maybe a shorter version of the pattern. And I might make a top. I absolutely recommend it, it is fun to sew and makes a very comfortable garment. Though I do not recommend making bodice A with the pants - there is a reason for the low-cut back of the pattern. That is, when you don't want visiting a toilet to be turned into a yoga exercise with the zipper and hook/eye at the back (what was I thinking...)
Another back picture
I am a fan, what's not to love? Despite the toilet challenge, I've worn the suit 3 times the last 5 days, it is sooo comfortable.
