Pattern Description: Close fitting cardigans have collar extending into front band and narrow hem.

Pattern Sizing: Xsmall to Medium. I made the small.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it did. I made view d

Were the instructions easy to follow? Absolutely!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
*I liked the ease of construction.
*I did not like that the facing needed interfacing; I don't think I needed it.
*The pattern says the front does not meet, but I found it meets and overlaps I will likely be belting it.

Fabric Used: Double layer of jersey cotton.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
*I constructed it with a double layer of jersey cotton on all areas with the exception of the facing and peplum.
*I sewed the dress in Alabama Chanin style.
*I narrowed the sleeves with a 1 in seam allowance.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes! I think I will make view c in a blue jersey.

Conclusion: I highly recommend this pattern
