The Rain Dance Dress

I made this Purple Dress (V1250 Dress) at the end of July and I have worn it 4 times.  I'm calling it the Rain Dance Dress - since, every time I wear it I get caught in the rain.  LOL!  And, no I don't think to take my umbrella when I put it on.  OMG!

Pattern Description: 
DKNY Vogue 1250, Misses Close-fitting Dress. 

Pattern Sizing:
6-20. I made the 14.  

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I made it, I love it! 3 pattern pieces and the finished dress is so pretty!

Fabric Used:
1 3/8 yards of Ponte Knit; purchased in a 1/2 priced bundle ($5) from Fabric Mart

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The first time I made this dress - never reviewed; I sewed a size 20 according to my measurements.  I ended up having to take it in every where to make the dress wearable.  This time I cut the size 14 and the dress fits perfectly.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes.  This is an amazing dress and that's part of the reason this pattern has been reviewed so many times.

Needles Up, 
Always Audrey
