All the description says is 'Close-fitting dress' - but this pattern doesn't need too much explanation given how many amazing versions there are already!
6-14 - I made a straight size 12 and the fit is great!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
SO SO SO easy! Three pattern pieces and only a short time later I had a fabulous comfortable dress
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
To be honest, the only reason that I bought this pattern is because I found it on Pattern Review’s end-of-the-year Top 10 patterns. The picture on the model looked cute but like nothing special at first glance - but I really like the cowl neck, the slightly capped sleeve, and the fact that there are no side seams past the waist, it add some serious comfort to the dress!

I really like the fabric for this dress because I know it is something I’ll wear often and can easily dress up or down – but the fabric isn’t the best at showing any of the style lines/seams in the back. Oh well, I’ll choose a different fabric next time.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any, fits great. I would consider shortening at the waist if I make it again but I wouldn't say it is necessary.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yea and YES! This is a great pattern that looks wonderful and is such an easy sew.
Cute, easy, fun, and versatile! More pictures on my blog!
