Pattern Description: Misses dress, top and skirt with princess seams and sleeve variants

Pattern Sizing: I bought plus and got to use the smallest size!

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?except for my additional seaming and surprise, I skipped the zipper!

Were the instructions easy to follow? very much so

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?so many seams for fitting

Fabric Used: a stretch cotton print and a woven cotten plaid

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a seam on the front and back side waist to add the contrast fabric and just break up my print a little bit.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?come on somebody, try this one out!

Your dress is very pretty. I love what you did adding the seam at the waist on the side. Ingenious!

Ah, my favorite poser - you know, the type of person who likes to pose, not the other type. Hey, nice dress!

Love, love, love! Yes, the envelope is a yawner--but maybe we should just tape your dress over the top?
