Knit Maxi Dress

Pattern Description: Empire waist dresses A, B, C, D have hemmed, scoop necklines, side seam pockets and elastic casing at waist; dresses A, C and D have hemmed armholes; dress A has contrast bodice and hem band; dress B has sleeves gathered to sleeve band.
Pattern Sizing: B5(8-10-12-14-16), RR(18W-20W-22W-24W)Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Mostly
Were the instructions easy to follow? Instructions were super easy. I didn't really need them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved that this dress had pockets and that it went together so quickly.
Fabric Used: Polyester KnitPattern
Alterations or any design changes you made: I added two inches to the bodice length and one inch to the width to make sure I had full bust coverage.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I definitely plan to sew at least one more of these. It's so comfortable.
Conclusion: I've been dying for a maxi dress but have very limited time to sew. The ease of this design allowed me to get my dress and not have to commit too much time. There are other maxi designs still on the cutting table but I've already worn this dress twice.
