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? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn't like that dress was so short but that was easily remedied. Sometimes I find myself having to adjust the drape so the wrong side doesn't show.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Lengthened skirt by 4 inches; swayback adjustment; added 1/4 inch to side seams of skirt.

Conclusion: This is definitely a TNT pattern. It is a very quick sew, very flattering, and extremely comfortable. Each time I wear this dress I receive numerous compliments.
