- What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pattern itself was easy to follow. I did have some trouble getting the facings to sit correctly, but that may have been a result of my tracing. Fabric used
Chocolate Lollipop Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I had to drastically take in the sides of this dress. I took in about four inches total at the waist. (And yes, I made the size that corresponded to my measurements). Otherwise, it looked like a tent. Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
This was a very fun pattern to do! Well, except for the facings....
