Pattern Description:
Misses stretch knit, close-fitting dress

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were great. This dress is actually one of those that is fun to make. It feels like putting together an easy, fun, puzzle and though it might look difficult, I found it very easy and enjoyable to make.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Great look, great fit, easy to make. No dislikes at all.

Fabric Used:
Heavy white knit fabric.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely sew again because it's also begging to be a little black dress, maybe a nice navy work dress. If you make it in a print, I would think you would get a look so different no one would know it was the same pattern. A keeper!

Conclusion:
As always, I'm late to the party on this pattern. Everyone loves it, and now I know why. Get it while you can, you can use this one for years to come!
