Pattern Description: Dress pattern

Pattern Sizing: 8-18, I cut a straight size 14

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 - they were simple and easy to follow

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No dislikes - I liked that the pattern is simple and has different dress options.

Fabric Used:
Even though it doesn't recommend double knit, I used a double knit from Fabric.com. I went with double knit after seeing Mimi G used double knit. I also read that most patterns that call for woven fabrics can be made up with double knit.



Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any alterations or patterns changes with this dress. Pretty happy with the fit although I would have liked it to be a little more fitted. Next time, if I use a double knit, I will leave the back zipper out since the neckline is wide enough to pull over the body.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes!
Conclusion: This is the first time I used this pattern and I'm not sure why I waited so long. It's a great pattern and I want to make more using the other options.
