Camouflage Fashion

Here's my inspiration, a Karl Lagerfeld camouflage dress.
I used it in my camouflage knit purchased from JoAnn Fabrics, Los Angeles and Vogue 8946.
Pattern Description:  Close-fitting, partially lined dress has front seam/dart detail, pleats, narrow hem and back zipper.

Pattern Sizing:  8 - 24.

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is the second time around with this pattern, I didn't read the instructions.

Did the finished garment look like the drawing on the pattern envelope?  Yes, it did. 

What notions did you use?  The pattern called for a 22 inch Zipper and Hook & Eye. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  I'll say it again, I LOVE this dress. I particularly like the gathers in the front. 

What pattern alterations or any design changes did you make?  I omitted the lining.   

Which sewing machine did you use?  I used my serger for most of the construction. 

Would you sew it again?  No, I'm done with this one. 

Would you recommend it to others?  Yes, I would recommend it.

As stated in a previous post, "I'll definitely make this dress again? and I did.
