Pattern Description:
Close-fitting, straight, above mid-knee dresses A, B have lined yoke, bodice and back zipper. A: back self-fabric loop and button at neck. B: back straps worn twisted and buttoned on inside of yoke.
Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? The bodice looks like the pattern envelope but I made modifications to the skirt.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes they were.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No dislikes but the bodice does run quite large.
Fabric Used:
Cotton sateen.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The skirt was modified to an eight gore fit to flare skirt with piping and a waist inset was added.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I do recommend it but I don't think I'll sew it again.
Conclusion: Its a cute dress that was fun to make. I modeled this dress at the 2013 ASG National Conference Fashion Show.

So lovely! I was really dissapointed to see that the great skirt shape doesn't come with the pattern, you've modified it so well.
