Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, SUPER simple.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress!!!
I used this sheer type cotton I purchased from Hancock last year sometime.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I underlined the entire dress. Because I was using a sheer fabric, I knew I was going to have to line it.
You can see a pic of just the fabric HERE I didn't really want to use a white or some loud color because that just wasn't the look I was going for. I've seen the black/nude combo and I've always loved it so the idea was born! LOL
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
YES! I am totally gonna make this again! I LOVE this dress and the fit was just SUPERB! I want to make view A next lol.
GREAT GREAT GREAT dress!! If you don't have this pattern, hurry and get it!
