|Pattern Description: Misses' dress in two lengths with back variations.|
Pattern Sizing: Size H5 - 6-14. I made a 10 bodice and 12 skirt.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much, there wasn't a picture of the combo I created, but near enough.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, as usual for Simplicity they were pretty detailed.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was simply a personal thing. I have very limited knowledge of how to redraft or modify patterns. I would have liked to tweak or grade down in the shoulders and armscye to a size 8, then out to a 10 for the waist, but with facing complicating things, I just couldn't tackle it.

Fabric Used: A lovely citrus vintage print cotton poplin.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made view D without sleeves. I topstitched in a contrast colour. I made the skirt a size 12 as the skirt is not particularly full and I wanted more flounce.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I won't sew it again, but recommend it. I just have too many other items I'd like to sink my teeth into!
Conclusion: I had so many troubles with this make for some bazaar reason, but in the end I really love it, fitting issues and all (and there were lots of those!).
