Fabric:Cotton Sateen  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description:
Dress has neckline and skirt variations, close-fitting, lined bodice and back zipper. A: side front pockets and side front and side back pleats. B: lined skirt and shaped hemline, lining shows. C: back pleats, bow, knot, and side zipper.

I made view A minus the pockets.

Pattern Sizing:
A5(6-8-10-12-14), E5(14-16-18-20-22)

I made a straight size 20 although I could have gone down a size in the waist.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes for the most part. I skipped on the lining and made an all-one-facing instead.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern was really easy to fit and sew. Nothing to dislike.

Fabric Used:
Cotton sateen purchased from Metro Textiles in NYC.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As mentioned, I skipped the lining and made an all-in-one facing instead. Forward shoulder adjustment 3/8" and shortened the darts by 1". Oh, and I used an invisible zipper. Added the tie belt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I would definitely sew this one again as soon as I find the right fabric.

I need more of this dress in my life! For more info, hop on over to my blog
