Pattern Description: Misses'/Miss Petite dress in two lengths and tie belt.

Pattern Sizing:12-20. Fairly true to size, I made the recommended size.

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? Fairly straightforward, did require some thought. Intermediate.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Love the bodice details, pleats, sleeves, collar.

Fabric Used: Cotton Sateen

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make the tie belt, and added a separate waistband piece instead. Read more about it here.Shirtdress to the resucue

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't think I'll make this one again, but it's a neat dress, and yes, I would recommend it.

Conclusion: A nice variation on the basic shirtdress.

Love your addition of that midriff band. I really love basic with a difference.
