|Pattern Sizing:I made the XS. It fits true to size, slightly oversized like the envelope.|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much, although I changed the front/back panels to the bias in order to make a chevron pattern.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Didn't use them, so I couldn't say. This was super easy to make!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I don't think this is for me. I never like weird hemlines, and to be honest, I kind of feel like there's a giant arrow pointing at my lady parts! The hemline wants to curl (probably due to cutting on the bias.) The sleeves are a little wide, but they're comfortable, so that's not a problem.
Fabric Used:wool jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I cut the bodice on the bias and took in under the arms slightly.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Nope, but I think this would be cute on the right person. It was easy and went together well. The raglan depth for this view wasn't nearly as deep as the modeled view, which was a concern!
