Pattern Description:
Simple shift dress with sleeves.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were, but I'm a new sewer so I had to read them carefully.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the collar and the shape of the sleeves.
Fabric Used:
Cotton Lawn
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Graded from a smaller top half size to a larger bottom half size. I didn't know what I was doing but it worked out OK.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, it's a nice pattern.
It's not perfect but as it's my first attempt I'm pretty happy with it. I haven't dared wear it out yet incase I haven't sewed the seams properly.

I checked HillyTown's blog and it is the right number. So maybe a glitch with the site.
