Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes! Very much so.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Fairly, although the zipper installation instructions didn't make sense for the invisible zipper called for.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Pattern was fairly blah. Nothing in particular stood out in particular.

Fabric Used:
Quilting cotton purchased at Hobby Lobby. (boo HL!)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Ended up taking in the waist about 4". There is a LOT of ease in the pattern. Could (should?) have done a smaller size but did not know how adding a lining would change the fit and how much ease it would require. Added full lining.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again but probably will not as there are too many other beautiful patterns out there begging to be sewn.

Conclusion:
Basic princess-seam dress that can easily be adapted for whatever you need it for.
