Pattern Sizing: 6-22. I made a mix of 8/10 based on the finished garment measurements and they were very accurate. I made view A.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! It's really unique and very cute!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, I think so. The instructions are clearly illustrated and recommend that you label the shoulder strap parts throughout construction. I pinned little sticky note labels on mine, and worked slowly, reading thoroughly. Once you get through the straps, the rest of the dress construction is a piece of cake!
Fabric Used: 2.5 yards of rayon challis from Joann's that was purchased about 3 years ago. The weight and drape was ideal for this style, and the print works well with the style, too. I love the pinks/purples of the leopard/floral print.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. I actually stuck to the rules, for once!
*Caution: If you are long or short in the torso, you may want to muslin the bodice, as the straps won't be easy to adjust.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would! This was a gift for a friend, so I'd love to make myself one now! Yes, I'd recommend it others with advice to label the strap parts, work slowly, read and re-read, and don't lose your patience!
Conclusion: It turned out exactly how I'd hoped, and my friend is thrilled!
