I have to apologise for the bad indoor/night photos, I didn't get it finished on Sunday and when I get home after work now it's dark dark dark.
I'm really happy with the overall fit of the dress and the modifications I made (though the pleats would look better if I had been bothered to iron them). I ended up taking off the little cap sleeves and added pleats to the skirt. I do have plans to make a bow belt to match the dress but that will have to wait. Overall, I liked the pattern though wouldn't recommend it for a novice sewer - the instructions are a bit vague. Though that makes it a fantastic pattern for the moderate sewer who is looking to start modifying patterns by themselves.
It's a great basic dress that really does have endless variations and can be made for winter or summer depending on the fabric you use. It has a lovely vintage silhoette for those looking for that style, but as a warning (and one that I have to thank those who left comments mentioning it) the neckline is V-E-R-Y low. Fix that before you cut your real fabric.
Make sure you check out the other girls, everyone has done such a fantastic job!!
