Pattern Description: Elastic waist, pleat front dress

Pattern Sizing: 4 - 16

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? The instructions were very sparse but was a simple dress to put together.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I think the instructions regarding how to pleat the dress could have been clearer.

Fabric Used: Emerald broadcloth.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added in my own slash pockets. I ended up having to take 0.5 inch from each side of the bodice and 1.5 inch from each size of the skirt. The dress is now a good fit and looks great. I think I'll size down next time.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Will definitely be trying this dress again maybe in a chiffon fabric, very versatile and a good addition to my work wardrobe.

Conclusion:
Buy this pattern for $8.00     Add to Bag Add to Bag

Very pretty color. I think the addition of pockets make this dress a great foundation piece for a fall wardrobe.

Cute dress and like your pockets, too. This dress would look nice with a belt, too.
