Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it does!
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy enough that a beginner could handle this project with ease.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? When I first saw this pattern, I thought, "Meh, another sheath dress. But the pleats are interesting." But then, I looked at the technical drawing and say the back and was sold!
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added about 3 inches to the hem. Had it not been for the length of this dress, I would have been able to sew this straight out of the envelope.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Doubtful that I'll sew this again, but I do recommend it.
Conclusion: I think this dress is very flattering and the low-cut back is downright sexy!
