|Pattern Description: Self drafted jersey top made by following the instructions in Tomoko Nakamichi's book Pattern Magic Stretch Fabrics .|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? You be the judge! The original concept from the book can be found here

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very easy. The instructions are minimal but simple: you need to enlarge and shrink the bodice back and bodice front from the pattern supplied (but I used my Renfrew). For full details, see blog post
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Quick way to get the Pattern Magic result. The garment is more suited to a long skinny body type perhaps but the construction was interesting and I was out for the learning experience!
Fabric Used: Two types of stretch cotton jersey: black for the front, striped for the back. I used leftover: this was an experiment.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added the original sized Renfrew cuffs, neckband and waistband.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I'd make it for my daughter and possibly for myself as well in just one colour.
