Ok, here's my review.....
I bought a 14 and up since that's the only one they had in the store. It was easy to grade it down to a 12. After trying it on I ended up taking in the bodice at least another size or so and I took out about 1" out of the shoulder straps.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, yes, and yes!!!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nothing to dislike. Only 2 pattern pieces! Super easy!
Some poly knit. I think it has some rayon in it. It's only has a crosswise stretch and is a tad bit sheer. I think it's part of the Jo-Ann's tribal collection. Bought it a few months agao.
I mentioned some above.
1. Took bodice side seams in for snugger fit.
2. Took up shoulder 1"
3. Added 2-3" for length. I'm 5"9 and usually do this. The pattern is quite long otherwise.
4. I made my own binding. Cut 2" width (didn't have to do bias since it stretches anyway) and and as long as I needed it. I made binding for both the neckline and armholes. My knit was too lightweight to not have a binding of some sort.
I've already got fabric for 2 more. Hope to knock out by the weekend:)

Exceptional pattern!!! Definitely a winner for the year. Just see all of the other reviews!!! That speaks for itself!!!!
