Fabric:Ponte Knit  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description:
A cute, simple t-shirt with multiple sleeve length options (short and long). Flared at hips, fitted through shoulders & bust.
Pattern Sizing:
True to size.
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?
I like that the pattern is true to size and offers a slightly different version to a typical t-shirt. The option for short/long sleeves is nice and I think the elbow patch accent it cute.
Fabric Used:
grey ponte knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the sleeves due to lack of fabric and omitted the elbow patches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It's a cute top. I will make it again. I may make it less flared at the hips (it could go the maternity top route if you aren't careful).

I like the neckline on this and you executed it well too, very smooth. It's a nice top and doesn't look homemade. You could always take this one in a bit at the bottom if you find it's too suggestive (rather than waiting till next time).
