Maritime style summer dress (View B)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yup! Exactly like it.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Once I got past the confusion of pattern placements of the bodice, it was easy. Took a while though.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It would be nice to have better instructions. Labeling the pattern pieces in the instructions will make it a little easier.
Cotton (slight stretch)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I ignored the little V opening in the front of the bodice and the hem band in the instructions.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yup. I love the style and plan to have at least two dresses in this style.
Conclusion: Slightly heavy fabric is the best kind if sewing view B to get more structure.
