Pattern Description: Lined dress has close-fitting bodice and back zipper. A: semi-fitted skirt and back hemline slit. B: narrow hem. Custom fit for A,B,C,D cup sizes.

Pattern Sizing: 8-16

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? These instructions are great until you get to the neckline and sleeves. I only read over them for the review. IMO it was confusing. I don't do mine the way they suggest so maybe that's why it was confusing. I have my own method lol.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the modern/vintage look of this dress.

Fabric Used: Stretch cotton sateen

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I shortened the dress about 8 inches. This dress has an extension piece. Once I added it on I shortened it 8 inches. I didn't like the original length of this dress. It hit me in a weird place.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I WILL make this again. I have a dress on my pinterest board that I want to make and this pattern is an exact dupe lol. I HIGHLY recommend this if you can find it. It's OOP.

Conclusion: Great pattern, love that is has cup sizes. Goes together great and I had a BALL wearing it!

You can see additional pictures on my blog.

Your photo shows your flair and style and by far so much better than the pattern. Vogue should have used you to model the dress and would definitely have sold more patterns. I'm barely and intermediate level, and wonder if this pattern would be too hard for me.

Once again you have completely outdone Vogue's illustration department! Another pattern I never looked at, now flabbergasted with your outcome. Yes, I agree, modern AND retro.
