Pattern Description: Misses' dress and jumpsuits designed for day or evening.
I made the dress

Pattern Sizing:
I used a size 18

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Super duper easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think the halter back is pretty cute. I needed some more clothes for my upcoming trip to Jamaica and I love maxidresses. You can look hip and sexy and not show all of your business!

Fabric Used:
Cotton quilting from Hancocks

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not like the center front seam so i eliminated that and cut it on the fold instead. I also raised the neckline about 2 inches. I added 3 inches to the bodice length and added 6 inches in length to the skirt and lined it with . I also wanted the ties to be a little longer so I lengthened them about 3 inches each. I did a 3/4 inch FBA and rotated the dart to the underbust gathers.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yepper...this is one of my TNT maxidress patterns and I also plan on sewing the jumpsuit also

A winner. Jamaica here I come!!
