Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fitted bodice on this dress. It was supposed to be cut on the crosswise grain but I cut all but the ruffle on the lengthwise grain. Not sure why the crosswise grain would make a difference except in the way the pattern was displayed?
A cotton/synthetic blend lawn weight fabric. The fabric is sheer so this pattern was perfect for it with the underlining and lining. The lining is cotton broadcloth.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The only thing I changed was to cut the pattern on the lenthwise instead of the crosswise grain.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I love the way the bodice fits so I would like to try it with a full skirt for a sundress.
Conclusion: I have wanted to try this pattern ever since I saw it on Pattern Review done by MrsNodders. It certainly fits my dress form perfectly. I hope it will be a perfect fit on my daughter. She is a little concerned that her legs will be too constricted but none of the reviewers have mentioned this as a problem.
