Pattern Description:

Pattern Sizing:

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?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Very well fitted dress with enough oomph and flair.

Fabric Used:Cotton Canvas

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I added 3/4" to the bodice.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, I probably would sew this again

Conclusion: I like the broad pleats. I put in an exposed zipper which may not have been the best choice because of the pleats. I added a decorative grosgrain ribbon at the hem. Since my fabric was thinker than the pattern was looking for, I only lined the bodice with silk organza but did not line the skirt. This way I got the nice clean neck and armhole edges and didn't add any weight to the dress

I like the exposed zipper choice with this. It keeps it from looking too prim. Lovely fabric choice as well!
