Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, but the model is more shapely!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy, a total of 4 steps for view D, how can you go wrong?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the total of 4 steps to this view.
Fabric Used: Stripey knit from Walmart I picked up a year or so ago, very cheap!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used the fabric to make bias for the hems on the neckline and arm holes to prevent stretching.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't really care for the way that this dress falls, though it may be a body image issue, it just doesn't seem very flattering-I think this is more the case. I am considering shortening it to the length of the view C of this pattern. Something is just a bit off. I really should have done the view E, that would have been much more exciting.
Conclusion: Very easy to make, even I can whip this one out in hardly any time at all. (And it takes me a long time, generally, to complete a project.)
