Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Loved the style
Fabric Used: Cotton Sateen with lycra
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't line this dress. I also didn't add a zipper. My fabric had SO much stretch to it that when I added the zipper it almost looked like it was trying to "ruffle up" if that makes sense. So I took it out and basted it closed to see if I could get away without putting the zipper in. I didn't need it AT all. I was able to pull it over my head with no problem. I also added two inches to it. Without that it would have been too short for my taste. It hits right below my knee.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might make another view of this for the fall, I really wanted to showcase this gorgeous fabric. I highly recommend it if you like this style.
Conclusion: Great pattern, very easy to make.
