Pattern Description:
From the pattern envelope: "Wrap dress has close-fitting, bias bodice, tie ends, flared skirt and narrow hem."

Pattern Sizing:
This is a multi-sized pattern available in B5 (8-10-12-14-16) and F5 (16-18-20-22-24)
I made a size 14 for the bodice and sleeves and size 16 at the waistline and skirt.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. Although I made the view B length and added the view A sleeves.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. The instructions were great. This pattern is rated "very easy."

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the fit! I feel like a million bucks in this dress.

Fabric Used:
The most challenging polyester knit ever.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not shorten the pattern prior to cutting it out, but I did end up chopping four inches off the length. I did add some length to the short sleeves and they know fall just above my elbow.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely to both questions.

I agree with Sheseams. The dress you made definitely has a better fit than the model's. Great job!
