Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern is fail proof.
Fabric Used:
I believe it was a interlock knit from JoAnns's on the 60% off rack. Incredible hand, stretchy without showing all my imperfections.

None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Two more dresses that just need to be hemmed.
Conclusion:
I am building my spring/summer wardrobe and you just can't go wrong with this pattern. If you want a tighter look just use a lighter type of knit.

Nice fabric and the pattern really allows for the stripes not to be broken up.
