Dress has short kimono sleeves with slit and straight skirt.
I bought the group sizes of 14 and up so I had to scale it down to a 12 at the bodice and kept it a 14 at the hips and below.
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 much so!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It was an easy pattern I could use to show off a great knit print. I loved the sleeves too!
(love those sleeves)
(Belt close up---couldn't find the one I wanted in time so made due with this one. In the end it worked well)
A rayon poly knit in a cool geometric print.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I nixed the pockets so I made view C for the bodice and used view B for the skirt.
2. I coverstitched the hem, lower edge of sleeves, & the neck edge.
3. I made the waist casing as I always do. I sewed the 1 1/4 seam allowance and serged the edge leaving an opening to insert the elastic. My casing was kept free from the dress and wasn't sewn down.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I think so! It's a great, trendy dress!
Cute little dress! Great if you need a quickie project!
