Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, although I made some changes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very good instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is a top that has a very flattering fit through the torso. This is my 3rd top using this pattern.
Fabric Used: A poly/lycra knit from Mood Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 4 inches to the length, raised the front neckline an inch, added a cowl collar, and lengthened the sleeves. I eliminated the "ruffles" on the bottom.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? OH, yes...the fit of this top is very flattering! I highly recommend it!
Conclusion: This is my "go-to" for a long top or tunic. It lends itself to many changes.
