Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Almost- made a maternity alteration, so it looks a little different.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Sure. Ottobre directions are sparse but adequate.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love the pleated ruffle detail and it was just what I needed for a special occasion dress 8 months pregnant!
The fabric is a gorgeous rayon/silk blend I picked up somewhere. I love it enough that the dress is still hanging in my closet a year later. I need to reuse the fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I modified the skirt to fit over my huge belly. I used my bust sizing for the bodice and back of the dress. I then used the largest size for the front skirt and added a curved hem. Worked out perfectly.
