Pattern Description: Vintage reproduction dress from the 1960s, with wriggle style or full skirt options, and a crossed over bodice.

Pattern Sizing:I made size 8.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Can I say it looked better? Hee hee!

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?It's a great pattern - I love the reproduction ones that have been regraded for modern figures.

Fabric Used:A black cotton stretch sateen with bright red roses on it.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I did an invisible zip rather than a dress, but that was it.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes and yes! It's so comfortable, but I feel very glamorous in it!

Conclusion: I love this dress! I wore it to a wedding, and got many compliments on it. It's a winner! You can check it out more on my blog, Jorth!
