Pattern Description: MISSES' TOPS: Close-fitting.

Pattern Sizing:Y(XS-S-M), ZZ(L-XL-XXL) I cut a medium

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Somewhat. My fabric did not drape as much. I also did a straight hem instead of the elastic at the bottom. I also tacked the shoulder again about halfway down. See the picture. The wrong side of the fabric showed so I did this to cover it.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes. There are only 2 pieces.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Easy and quick.

Fabric Used:mystery fabric. I feels like a cotton knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:See above

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, i have made this twice.

Conclusion: Quick and easy. It works better with fabric with more drape.
