Pattern Description:
1940s style button front dress with collar. Has slightly puffed sleeves, pleated bodice front and back, with back yoke.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Mostly. I haven't sewn a tons of women's wear, so I had to re-read the instructions a few times to figure out the collar.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

The bodice back is extra puffy. It's to much volume in back! My next version will be modified.

Fabric Used:
Engineer striped linen shirting

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm sewing it once more for a vintage inspired Sewalong, then I'll probably not make it again.
