Pattern Description: Misses' & Miss petite dress with sleeve and neckline variations sewing pattern, Project Runway Collection.

Pattern Sizing: 12-20. I cut the 14.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, although you can't really see the lines as my print hides them

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are well written, I just get annoyed how Project Runway pattern instructions jump around the different views.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it is really simple and quick to make. Although I went for the simplest view, I like that it comes with the varied necklines.

Not really a dislike, but I would prefer a lower neckline.

Fabric Used: Cotton/Poly blend picked up whilst on holiday in Paris.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Nope, not really, I tapered in at the waist and under the bust for some additional shaping.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would recommend this dress, but not sure yet if I would sew it again.

Conclusion: Very quick and easy, and would be great for anyone that needs a speedy work dress. More pics on my BLOG
