Pattern Description: Misses dress with bodice variations.

Pattern Sizing:I made size 8

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very. It's a well written pattern.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Nothing - I LOVE this pattern!

Fabric Used:A heavy weight cotton, which really gives the skirt a lot of body, which I am totally chuffed with.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:Omitted the waist tie, but only because I knew I would wear this with a belt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, and yes!

Conclusion: I am so in love with my new dress - it's brilliant for summer! You can check it out more on my blog, Jorth!
