Pattern Description: Dress pattern with princess seams in three lengths with Amazing Fit cutting options.

Pattern Sizing:I cut a size 16 with the curvy options.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It went together really easily and I found nothing about it I didn't like.

Fabric Used:Navy spotted poplin

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I needed to take it in slightly down the sides, so I will consider a 14 next time. I used the longest length but ended up cutting about 2" off the bottom (I'm 5'6") and taking a 1/2" hem

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Definitely.

Conclusion: This is the first Amazing Fit pattern I have tried and was a bit apprehensive about choosing the right options but the instructions were clear and it was no problem. This is a very good all round dress which I think I will find useful. I'll definitely make another sometime.

Thank you for your review. Your dress looks lovely on you. This is the pattern I'd already decided to sew next and in the same size as yours. I even have a blue polka dot fabric but might do the first in lilac. Your review has inspired me to get started.

Thanks for the review. I started cutting out the shorter length today. I love how it has 3 skirt lengths and 3 sleeve options, 3 Cup sizes, and fit options of slim, average, and curvy. Amazing Fit patterns are great! I've made two so far.
