Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? N/A
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy. I laid the fabric over the top of the table with the wrong side up and traced along the edges with a piece of chalk. I folded the fabric into quarters and added approximately 8 inches outside the chalk mark for the sides and cut it out, one layer at a time. I wanted to do a rolled hem but my serger would not let me do anything but a wide O/L stitch on the heavy fabric. I shortened the stitch and ended up with a band of stitching about 1/4" wide along the outside edge of the tablecloth. It looked like a wide band of satin stitches. The next time I will do it the easy way and fold the fabric lengthwise and then crosswise, mark 8 inches further on the short and long sides (not folded sides), cut out the rectangle, then curve the corners using a plate for a template.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Went together extremely fast.
Fabric Used: A heavy cotton duck type fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, Yes
Conclusion: We have been covering a glass-top table on the pool deck with inexpensive plastic tablecloths to keep the top from getting covered with dust. The sun causes the tablecloths to fall apart. My DH wanted me to pick up another tablecloth when I was in town but I decided to use up some heavy cotton fabric that has been sitting in my stash for years. We were so happy with the results that I used another piece of fabric from the save storage container for a second one.
