10-28, I cut a size 10.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Eh...sort of yes, the pleats and general shape were there, but it still looks a bit awkward and ill-fitting. See more on My blog
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. Though I didn't always agree with them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really didn't like the shoulder strap facings that weren't staying in place. or the fact that the front (bust) part hung so low.
Fabric Used: A lightweight crinkly poly blend...your guess is as good as mine!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I decided I didn't want to be tied to a trend, so I made the bodice of view C with the skirt of view D, so that the hi-low cut effect would be eliminated. This, however, changes the position of the zipper-which I found out later. Lots more details and pics on my blog-click the photo.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Hmmm. This one had some major fit issues for me. Though it might have just been me...if you are feeling handy, sure, give it a try. I won't be making anything off of this pattern again though.
Conclusion: Didn't work well for me, a bit disappointing.
