Butterick 4386
Pattern Description:
Semi-fitted straight dress in lengths, with back zipper and back seam slit. Four sleeve choices; long, below the elbow, cap or sleeveless. Options include patch pockets (View D), tied hip band (View A), waist sash (View C), draped hip wrap (View F) and contrast collar with bow (View B)

Pattern Sizing:
Sizes 8 14 or 16 - 22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The zipper. I prefer to install zippers while the garment piece (or pieces) are still flat. Its easier to install a slot zipper into the back of a dress before sewing the side seams, so thats what I did.

Fabric Used:
Polyester faux silk

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None, which is VERY unusual for me!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If I want another sheath dress, I will definitely consider making this one again
Yes I recommend this pattern.

Conclusion:
I need a bigger mannequin! The dress appears to hang sadly, but, on a body my size its actually quite fitted. The pattern includes side bust darts and well as the vertical front darts, giving the chest area plenty of shape.
