Pattern Description: Simple faux wrap 3/4 length sleeve dress

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?The dress looked like the pattern picture.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very simple adequate instructions

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern does call for a flat stomach which alas I do not have
Fabric Used:Used a knit fabric from my stash. I do know I bought it online. It does have a definite pattern which I failed to center correctly on the front but I believe I can get away with it.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I used clear elastic on the neckline and I really like the results.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I may make just the top sometime.

Conclusion: I actually wore this dress Sunday and felt comfortable in it except I had to keep holding my stomach in!

Buy this pattern for $7.46  List Price: $9.95   Add to Bag Add to Bag
