Pattern Description:
Amazing Fit dresses with sleeve and neckline variations
Pattern Sizing:
My pattern ranges from size 10-18.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very easy to follow. The construction is pretty straightforward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the style, ease, and color-blocking possibilities of the pattern.
Fabric Used:
I used some kind of polyester blend.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The only design change I made is to shorten the length of the dress. Because of that, I eliminated the back vent.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might sew it again with some color blocking. The dress comes together pretty easily.

Conclusion: It's a nice dress. Quick and easy to make. There's more here on my blog.
