Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? almost exactly since I used the same fabric!
Were the instructions easy to follow? (sorry) but I didn't use them. the dress is fairly simple & has very few pieces - the front are cut on the fold the backs are cut with a center seam, then you have two sleeves.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I needed something to "spring" me into spring mode & this was it! I was really attracted to the bold print used on the pattern envelope so I just went with it. This dress would be a great LBD & it's very work friendly.
Fabric Used: "fashion" knit from Joann's
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I left off the back zipper since my fabric had plenty of stretch & was lightweight. I really think there is absolutley NO NEED for a zipper unless you line this dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'd make it again, I think it could be pretty flattering for a lot of people. full figured and slim figured. My shape is like an H (not slim, not big) and I think I look pretty great in it.
Conclusion: I got many compliments when wering it so I think it's a keeper!
