Pattern Description:
Sleeveless dress with lined bodice and neck band

Pattern Sizing:

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, just not as tall and skinny

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the feminine style and the method used to attach the bodice and lining. It also has pockets in the skirt side seams.

Fabric Used:
Embroidered cotton eyelet and cotton blend lining

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Adjustment of bodice for petite length and FBA. Also underlined the entire dress with cotton because of the eyelet.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Maybe, if I come across the right fabric

It's a cute and comfortable dress and the style lines make it easy to adjust the fit.

You look great in this length. It would be hard for me to pull off the midi.
