Listed as a "Very" close-fitting, pullover dresses. E and F: front seam detail, bias upper/middle fronts, and lower front/back (cut on crosswise grain of fabric. All have narrow hems.
I cut a size 14 with a 1/2" FBA and graded to a 16 at the hip front and added an additional 2" to the "back" pattern piece at the hip.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I have liked this dress design since it came out. The star and the mix of lines is what has always intrigued me. But until I found this fabric did I really want to make it. The star is what did it for me. It is such a cute whimsical addition to a simple maxi dress. I even enjoyed having the stripes being reversible, which is really the fabric. This keeps it from being boring.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I did not follow the instructions, and its not because I sew a lot, its just an easy sew. The neckline was changed substantially.

I lengthened it above the waist by 1" and at the hem by 2". Next time I will give it another 2" at the hem for heels. This dress runs short.
I also narrowed the skirt by 2" each side making it more straight instead of a-line.
A double placket was added to the neckline to add some pazazz.
