Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the style of the peplum and the pattern uses little fabric. I found the pattern to fit well too.
Fabric Used: a wrinkled/puckered silk
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used self made bias strips to finish the neck and arms rather than bias tape. I ended up reducing the sweep of the peplum by 6 inches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'd like to sew this again.
Conclusion: I originally bought the pattern to replicate a Kate Spade top which never happened. Now that I've made it, I really love it and hope to make more. It's cute, fun and uncomplicated!
