Pattern Description:
Flair dress with sheer front and back yoke.
Pattern Sizing:Size 18

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the lace yoke

Fabric Used:
I use white lace for the yoke and an unknown fabric for the bodice
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a peplum to the bottom instead of the flair skirt that came with the pattern. Instead of making it into a dress I made it into a pant suite.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will definitely make this as a dress next time, because I like the lace yoke
I think this is a great pattern to have because you can mix and match with so much.
