Pattern Description:
Dress has ruffles, semi-fitted, lined bodice and inset, raised waist and back zipper. View A. self-lined sleeves.
Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, except I added about an inch to the insert for more coverage.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, I read them before starting the project and as I was sewing.

Fabric Used:
Seersucker from

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I am a pear shape/ triangle so I had to add inches to the bottom but since I am new to altering I added inches to the waist so I had to figure out how to make the skirt fit into the bodice.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I purchased some yellow seersucker. Yes, I would recommend the pattern.
This is a great dress, really classy. I can't wait until the spring I can see myself wearing this dress often during the warmer days of spring and summer.
I am also entering the LWD contest.

The style looks great on you. You did a fantastic job with sewing an unusual collar treatment. For the contest, I was delighted to see your photos of how a jacket could be worn with this dress style. Enjoy your dress this Spring and the compliments you will earn. Put it on your Reminders to make another one next Fall in a deep, rich color.
