Pattern Description:
Classic shirt dress with short sleves, lapel collar, and curved wrap around hip pockets

Pattern Sizing:36-44, I made a 40

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very similar

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use them, but Dilly noted in her review that they could be improved

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the classic shirt dress styling and the shaped hip patch pockets. No dislikes.

Fabric Used:
Lightweight Ikea curtaining cotton. The lobsters, scrimps, pineapples, bananas, cherries, strawberries, cocktails, olives and flowers were irresistible!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
FBA for fit.
No interfacing. I like the soft finish that interlining with self fabric or cotton gives, so that’s what I used here for the collar and neck band.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, and yes. I'm likely to make one for me ( this is my daughters..)

Conclusion:
This is a great classic style and the fabric is so much fun. Gotta love Ikea!
