Now this was a project that I really enjoyed. I had the fabric for awhile now. It is Charmeause fabric and when I saw M6700 I knew that it would make a beautiful garment.

Pattern Description: Pullover dress has fitted, mock wrap bodice, shoulder ties, elasticized shoulders and raised (seamed) waist, fitted, narow hem, thread carriers and self belt.

Pattern Sizing: (16-24) I used size 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? They were pretty much easy to follow. I did have a problem once I got to the shoulder ties. The directions for the shoulder ties were a little confusing to me. I ended up winging it and learning what to do from my mistake.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked everything about the pattern except the directions for the shoulder ties.

Fabric Used: Charmeuse

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 3" to the waist and 4" to the hip. It calls for knit fabric but I decided to use Charmeuse. I also closed the front and back opening. It was very deep.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will be sewing this again and I do recommend to others.

Conclusion: I really like this dress. It calls for knits but I like Charmeuse or something similar. If I were to use knit I would make it a size or two smaller because this is alot of dress. You can't quite tell from the picture on the pattern.
