Did it look like the pattern envelope once you were done sewing it? I think it's identical!

Where the instructions easy to follow?
I did not read the pattern instructions, the pattern was only 3-pieces. I did use Vogue Vintage Sewing as reference
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the simplicity of the style. I did not like the flare; it made my hips look toooo wide so I made the dress into an A-line.
Pattern alterations or design changes you made:
I took 1” short back adjustment, swayback adjustment, sloped shoulder adjustment, and I lengthen the center back and center front length.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will be sewing this dress over and over again. It is a versatile that can be made in a variety of fabrics. I will recommend a similar pattern since this is a vintage pattern.
It is 1am I am going to bed, my next post you will pic of me wearing this dress. By the way the dress is a wearable muslin.
