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 didn't like that dress was so short but that was easily remedied so I guess I don't really have any dislikes. Love how fast this dress comes together.
Fabric Used: brown ITY knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Lengthened skirt by 4 inches; swayback adjustment; added 1/4 inch to side seams of skirt.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes as soon as I can get my hands on more ITY knits, and yes would recommend with alteration for added length unless you like really short dresses.
Conclusion: Really like this pattern. Must admit I would not have even considered it had it not been for the orher reviews and pics. This is a surprisingly flattering dress (I don't generally like elastic in the waist). I may even get up the nerve to wear this dress with a belt if I can find one I like as I dont usually wear belts. I will definitely be looking to make the other views in this pattern.
