I bought this pattern recently as I am really disappointed that all the dresses in the shops are either polyester and/or see-through and/or sleeveless and/or too short - often all four. I decided it was time to make proper summer dresses with sleeves, plus this pattern looked as if it would be suitable when I go to my nephew's wedding. The choice of sizes is excellent and the princess seam on the bodice worked out really well, much easier than I thought it would.
Any problems are with me rather than the pattern. I've always been low-busted and short-waisted with big hips - as I get older these "qualities" seem to be more exaggerated. The unsewn pleats under the bust made the bodice too tight so I eliminated one on each side and made the other two narrower - not sure that they're properly placed but the material is dark blue with a white pattern so it doesn't show. I'm thinking of missing off the midriff band and attaching the skirt to the bodice directly which would give a high waist (given that my waist is no longer where it should be and certainly not the 22" it once was).
Still, I have to say it's a good pattern and I'm glad I bought it. Once I get the dress the way I want it, I'll make more versions - hopefully an evening version like Jill's.
