Pattern Description: The Maggie Misses is the perfectly accompanied by the Maggie Children's Dress for a stunning mother/daughter look.
Sizes include: XS, S, M, L & XL. (2-16US)>

Pattern Sizing: I cut an XS with a slim skirt>

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are really straightforward. Lots of photos included

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the skirt on this pattern - it is beautiful. The pattern is also suitable for both woven and knits, which is awesome.

Fabric Used:
I used a rayon/cotton jersey from girl charles which is really poor quality and I am mad at myself for using it now because this dress just won't last long. I used an eyelet lace for the contrast trim

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I sewed the bodice a little smaller, owing to the fact that I have a very small back size.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will be sewing it again for sure and I would highly recommend this pattern. It creates a really elegant dress

Conclusion: Love this pattern. For more information please see my blog here
