Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were. There's nothing I can add here.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how this version looks like a top and trousers when you use different fabrics.
You can take the fullness out of this pattern very easily.
The gathers on the shoulders can be pleats if your fabric sits better with pleats.
Poly knit trousers with a cotton dot print top. This fabric was provided to me by Minerva Crafts UK
This version looks like a top and trousers.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the bodice because the top fabric has a slight amount of drape.
The pants uses a light weight slinky knit and sit nicely as is.
The waistband casing is wider to accommodate using a wider elastic. This makes the top sit firmer on me.
Here's my Woman's Weekly pose.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. I didn't like it when I first used it 4 years ago but I think that was 'user error' ie my lack of sewing experience with knits.
I surprised myself with this pattern.
I think this pattern can be made as an evening or casual outfit. I can see that it's also useful if you travel and use knits that don't crush.
