Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pattern has a front "stay" piece which helps to hold the shape of the cowl and also serves as a modesty panel when you bend over. See my blog for photos of the stay and the front bias piece during the construction process. There is a collar as well - I don't think I have ever seen a collar combined with a cowl neck top before so I think that makes the pattern unique. There is also an elastic waist with a tie belt. I've worn this blouse several times and the elastic waist stays put so there is less fidgeting throughout the day!
Rayon/Poly (I think). I've had this in my stash for years and years and finally decided to sew it up.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely. Next time, I will do a plain fabric with a contrasting stay piece, collar and belt - that would be pretty snazzy!
A great pattern with 3 views - top, tunic or dress. I can see myself making this pattern several times in all three lengths.
