I made this dress (M5425) some time ago
I loved the print but at the time, didn't love the dress so I never wore it for "fashion" and would just wear it to run to the post office or grocery store. Over time, I came to really love the dress because it always made me feel so happy to be dressed so brightly so I decided to make it again in another fun print. Then a couple of weeks ago I spotted this dress on
Mimi's Blog and was inspired instead to make this
This dress wears like dream.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy, didn't need them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the ease with which this came together. A great dress in a couple of hours.
Fabric Used: Crepe Knit bought from Fabric.com awhile ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the pattern as directed, however, I did add inseam side pockets. I also used a knit when it was recommended for wovens.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I plan to sew this at least once more. I would definitely recommend this pattern to others.
Conclusion: This pattern is simple but stylish pattern, easy to sew, easy to wear. Great for beginners.
