Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think it does.

Were the instructions easy to follow? This pattern was extremely easy. After fighting with the last project, this one was a breeze!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I'd been looking for a jumpsuit pattern for a while. This one is a real treat for me, because I love both styles. Also, it's drafted for either a woven or a knit!
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthened the bodice by 1". But I hadn't noticed that the seam allowance for the bodice and the pant part was supposed to be 1". Since I miscalculated my alteration, I used a 5/8" allowance and 3/8" wide elastic for the waist. I also lengthened the pants by 3".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? If you like jumpsuits, I recommend this pattern. I will also sew View C in a knit for Summer!
