Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it does.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Great directions. I had to look up two terms "layer seam" and "stitch a scant." The layer seam was easy and I know I will use this technique again.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a great pattern for a cute trendy dress.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
My 6 year old (mini model) saw this pattern and knew it was for her. Lol! I was not sure how to approach this pattern because my daughter is slim and tall. I cut a size 5 all around but cut the size 7 in length. This was a perfect fit. The neckline was kind of tricky and I could have done better. I will definitely try this dress again.
I couldn't seem to get the "stitch a scant" right. After stitching the seam, I could not manage to turn the loop right side out.
I made the loops the same way I make spaghetti straps.
The loops came out nicely.Cold shoulder

Progress Report:Simplicity 8383-I made it! Yes. It's cute! Until I burned it. Stay tune for my next post. I ordered some fabric online to make this pattern again. I am not happy with my select. I purchased a creamy pink from Fashion Fabric. The color is not as cute as it looked only. I think I am going to look from a print instead. This was my first time ordering from Fashion Fabric. I am not too happy with my order. One fabric description was a "Chocolate Dark Cocoa but it is not dark at all. Maybe it is faded. I don't know. I think I am going to stick to my regular Online fabric stores.
Oh yeah. I almost forgot to mention. I purchased some fabric from Mood Fabric and they're fabric is divine. I can't wait to cut into them.
