Pattern Description: Misses fitted wrap dresses have waist seam, slightly flared skirt, V-neckine, bust darts and self-fabric ties. View B has 3/4 length sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: XS-XL I made the medium.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Kwik sew always has THE best directions. Their patterns are worth the directions alone. I did look over these for the sake of the review but I didn't need them.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style of this dress. I normally use Vogue 8379 when I want a wrap dress but I truly believe that one has been replaced.

Fabric Used: Matte Jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the fabric ties wider. I didn't like the narrow ones.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes yes yes yes yes and yes. I am making this one again. And again. And, well you get the point. This pattern is OOP so if you can find it anywhere grab it.

Conclusion: Excellent pattern!
