As with all the Big 4 patterns, I measure as a 14 but I cut a size 12 and it fits well.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Not really! The envelope shows a well fitted bodice and mine was definitely not well fitted.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were easy to follow but omitted basic tips like seam finishings and options for neater construction. Pretty typical for a Big 4 pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I dislike the difficulty of fitting!
100% cotton seersucker.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
So many! Blogged about here. More pictures too!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will not sew this again because it was very very difficult to get it to fit. I am really leaning towards independent patterns for super-fitted garments like this as I have had way less trouble fitting patterns with better drafting and better instructions. I would recommend this only to advanced seamstresses that can troubleshoot fitting issues with minimal stress.
I think it's easy to make this badly and difficult to sew it up well.
