Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! I made it in the exact same tartan (plaid) that was on the envelope. I got it from America even though I live in Australia. It is called Stewart Black. It was a lightweight wool, and I lined it as well, even tough the pattern has a facing.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. You have to cut each of the pieces singly to get the check to match.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the ease of construction and the look.
Fabric Used: http://www.thescottishweaver.com/WoolTartans/ 100% worsted tartan
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I had to cut the A/B bodice in 14, the back 12 the waist and front band 14 and the skirt graded out to 18
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, my other daughter wants version D.
Conclusion: An iconic tartan dress! A breeze to make and very easy to fit!
