Pattern Sizing:

16/18

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?

Didn't follow them.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Classic Pattern!

Fabric Used:

Silk Charmeuse with a Silk Chiffon overlay.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I used the dress to try out Chris Palu's bias shred chiffon technique from Project Runway Season 10. It worked out great!

I also did an all-in-one facing and moved the zipper to the side- both of which I recommend highly if you are sewing with charmeuse and chiffon like I did!

See details on my blog: Unlikely Nest: Maid of Honor Dress

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I already have! Several times.
Conclusion:

Love this pattern, very versatile.

Creativity at its best...your technique is unique and you've documented it beautifully on your blog. Such a stunning, one of a kind dress. Kudo to you! An advanced sewist would have to be brave to tackle it...for a beginner it is a remarkable feat.

I figured if Chris Palu could do it in a day on Project Runway, how hard could it be? It was more time consuming than I thought. But I do love the finished product!

Wow, your dress is stunning! I commend you for your creativity. I love this pattern anyway as a great staple, and you've transported it to an amazing level. The color is also gorgeous!
