Pattern Description: Pullover dress with side zipper, neckline variations, semi-fitted front and darted back bodice, pleated or gathered skirt.

Pattern Sizing:
Misses multi-sized pattern 6-8-10-12-14

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the feminine look of the ruffles and how the midriff lining hides the seams on the inside where the bodice and skirt are attached. I made a size 14, ruffled bodice, sleeveless, with the pleated skirt.

Fabric Used:
Quilters Showcase Cotton in a grey print.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No design changes were made as this is a great pattern.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I have made 3 dresses from this pattern and have a fourth one cut out.

My adult daughters love it when I make them a dress from this pattern. It sews up nicely and can be worn as a casual day dress or a night out on the town.

This looks wonderful. I hardly recognized it as the dress on the pattern cover -- I have this pattern but haven't tried it yet. I think you've convinced me :)

A lovely dress. I like the vaguely 1940s style of it.
