Pattern Sizing: XS-XL, I made XS
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, with modifications
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very easy instructions
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked this pattern as a foundation - a starting point. I made a lot of adjustments. I didn't like the way the side seams are toward the back. I didn't like how low the neckline is in front. I really like the racer back.
Fabric Used: Nylon Lycra Active Wear Fabric
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I raised the neckline 1", lowered the hem 3", lengthened the shelf bra 2" (and I'm an A!), moved the side seams toward the actual side by 1", and trimmed off the seam allowances to sew my elastic on the wrong side and bind the edges without the bulk of turning it in on a fold. I added fake piping down the side seams and the binding, as well as the little front silver enhancement pieces.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this again but I retraced the pattern with all the changes and it's quite different. I will also add a second piece to the shelf bra for removable cup inserts like my RTW workout tops have for shaping. I'd recommend this top but be careful with the length especially - I think it's way too short unless you like a little tummy showing.
Conclusion: This was a good starting point for what I wanted to do. It's not a bad pattern but it definitely needed adjustments.
