This is a beautiful dress which I love but is quite dressy so don't know how much wear I'll get out of it. I cut and sewed a size 20
It did look like the pattern cover.
I would recommend it but the crossover of the neck area is complex and not at all obvious. I love the finished dress and have received many compliments on it. The fabric is a brocade, I think but I'm not at all sure.
I would sew it again but wouldn't recommend it for beginners. I found the sleeves to be very narrow.

It's a beautiful dress. I have liked this pattern but really never thought of it in a dressy fabric and since I need a cocktail dress for a wedding I will look at it again. Very nice.
