Looks easy, but confusing pattern Review by Cheryl

This looks like a very simple knit dress. Most of it is simple. However, the directions for the contrast section are very vague and not explained well. A detailed picture for adding the contrast piece would be helpful. Didn't sew together well at all. Consequently, i had to rip out that section, which did not do well for the the cotton knit i was using.The rest, side seams etc sewed up fine. Runs a but small. I am 5'4" and there was about a 1/4 inch for a hem. Also, very low cut in the front. Very disappointing.
