Fabric:Linen Blend  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: A woven t-shirt with capped sleeves and scoop neck. Fitted at the shoulders, this top falls into a loose shape below the bust. Techniques involved include straight seams, bias binding, setting sleeves and basic hemming

Pattern Sizing:
Sized from 0 to 18. I wear a RTW 12, I cut a 12

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not really, I was using this pattern as a base to knock off a top I saw in NorthStyle catalog.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Did not need them.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? this is a great pattern. Great base pattern easy to alter to make different looks.

Fabric Used: A linen blend from JoAnns

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I saw a top in the NorthStyle catalog that I liked, this was my version of it. So I changed the neckline to be a V, and drafted collars to mimic the inspiration top. Inspiration top
I was not sure how the back looked on the inspiration top, so I cut the back in two sections, and set a pleat in center back of lower section. I love the movement it gives the top.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Many times, so easy to alter, and make look original.

Conclusion: I love this pattern.
My version
