What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The bow and interested sleeve
Fabric Used: very light, flawy 100% cotton from the sale table at Fabric Mart. I think I paid <$5/yd for this.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I plan on making the other variation of this top
Conclusion: We just returned from St John and this would probably have been the only shirt I needed. I love the fabric and it was perfect for this pattern. The sleeves are interesting, but you can't really see it on this print. Rather than set in, they have a neat squared off seamline. If you're looking for a nice summer shirt pattern this one is great.
