Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were. This pattern is rated 'EASY' with good reason!

“I love that [the patterns] are
giving women the freedom
to create for themselves
and express who they are.” - Kay Unger

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? What's not to love! If I didn't have time to make a dress and needed one for an event or occasion, I'd buy a Kay Unger! The cut of this dress is so flattering! The midriff section is contoured and makes the waist, hips and butt look great! I love princess seams! And I love the topstitching. I am curious as to why the topstitching wasn't continued in the skirt part of the dress.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added about 3 inches to the hemline. And I sewed down the front opening. I knew there would be gaping right there. Even though the flat pattern measurements seemed to fit my needs, I could have used a small FBA. Notice my opening is much more than the original.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I wouldn't sew it again. It's simply too many more dresses I want to make. But I do recommend it.
