Pattern Description:
Misses' sleeveless, modern 1960's A-line dress has centre font seam, fitting darts and back zipper. Choose scalloped collar, neck bow or round neckline.

Pattern Sizing:
6-22 I cut a 16 (had read other review saying it runs small as it's the original 1960s cut.)

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Brilliant instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
LOVED the one piece facing. Loved the whole thing really.

Fabric Used:
Cotton Sateen in Seafoam Green with contrasting white for collar.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Used invisible zipper instead and shortened dress by 5".

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Definitely - it was a dream to sew, I love the fit and want to try different colours and variations.

I highly recommend this pattern!

Thank you! I was worried the back showed my flabby bits too much - ah well might just have to invest in some shapewear! Thank you for the comment!
