|Pattern Description: Semi fitted knit tops by Katherine Tilton. Neckband, princess seams, shaped hemline flounces, long sleeve, raw edge hem.|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, although I attached the flounces incorrectly, but the idea is there
Were the instructions easy to follow? Not entirely; when you get to sewing the flounces, as others have commented, it can be tricky to see what is intended. Study the line drawing, and you should be fine. Don't do what I did, which was the conventional right-side to right side and seam.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's quite pretty on the model, but I decided it's not that flattering on someone of my shape. Here's a rear view. the dress form is exactly my size. My rear is already flouncy enough. It has occurred to me that perhaps I should have shortened it just a bit; I am 5' 4", possibly it would be more flattering if it was shorter.
Fabric Used: thin drapey knit of unknown composition. More stash busting
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably won't make it again, but instead will use it to dress my dress form when it's not otherwise in use.
Conclusion: Could work for you; not thrilled with it on me....
