Pattern Description:

MISSES' DRESS: Dress has ruffles, semi-fitted, lined bodice and inset, raised waist and back zipper. A: self-lined sleeves. A and B: semi-fitted skirt and stitched hem. C: lined sleeves and narrow hem.

Pattern Sizing:

14-22, I made the 20

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

yes, although I made pattern additions

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Nothing to complicated, unless you are a beginner then maybe the inset may be annoying.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

The ruffles!

Fabric Used:

Black Linen and Teal Brocade from Joann's

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Color blocking at the inset and sleeves

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes I recommend it, as by the number or reviews the dress flatters most shapes and is fun to put together.

Conclusion:

Nice addition to any closet, you can find more details on how I made the inset and sleeve changes on my blog:

I like the peekaboo color - keeps it flirty like the ruffles. Nice colors too
