Pattern Description:
Princess seamed shirt/coat dress, in three lengths, with 4 sleeve choices (3/4 with self cuff, elbow with tab, short or sleeveless), collar, topstitching, optional small chest pockets, optional self fabric tie belt.

Pattern Sizing:
Sizes 6-12 or 14-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Not exactly, because I changed the shape of the lapels.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the detailed fitting instructions.

Fabric Used:
Silk/cotton shirting, polyester pongee for lining, black silk haboti and black lace

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I widened the lapels, and covered them with black lace. I omitted much of the topstitching. I added a lining (to help the shirting retain its shape, especially in the seat area), black lace on the rolled cuffs, and two black silk covered buttons at the edge of the lapels.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, Id make this again. I like the cut and fit. The instructions were easy to follow and the pieces went together smoothly.
Yes I recommend this pattern.

Conclusion:
I enjoyed making this dress and its quite comfortable to wear. The extensive fitting instructions are a nice bonus. The multiple lengths and sleeve options give this pattern lots of versatility.
