Pullover dresses have bodice variations, elasticized (seamed) waist, and narrow hem. A and B: fitted bodice. C and D: mock wrap, very loose-fitting bodice with elasticized shoulders.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes! Very intuitively put together, but easy to follow instructions too.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love a maxi! I also loved the ruched/gathered shoulder seams. The front split is...whew. The split is more centered than on the side and you DO have to be careful not to display your lady bits!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I looked at the finished measurements and was confused why the bodice sizing was SO large. I ended up cutting a small top and waist (my measurements are 38.5" full bust and 34.5 waist). I graded to a medium at the hip (I'm 43" at the hip). I hemmed it 2.5" - it was LONG. I had to tack down the bodice but wouldn't mind the cleavage if I were like...on a date with my husband. This day, I was hanging with my parents, kids, siblings and nieces and nephews
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I am going to sew the racerback version for sure. I will also likely make the crossover top but with the 'regular' skirt. I think the slit is a bit too much for me.
Buy it. Make it. I think there are lots of fun possibilities with this pattern.
