Pattern Description:
This top came as a kit from Craftsy and it is called Timeless Tilton. It has a fitted collar, collar band, front pin tucks, shaped hemline with pin tucks also in the sleeves.
Pattern Sizing:
I used a size 8 and then followed the instructions in "Pattern Fitting with confidence" by Nancy Ziemam. It fits perfectly and I am thrilled.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I would post a picture but not sure how to accomplish that as this is my first posting.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the pin tucks! So easy to do and add such a pleasing detail. The shaped hemline is also very attractive.

Fabric Used:The kit was on sale so I got the pattern and beautiful Koffman chambray for about 29.00. The fabric is a dream to work with!!! Good quality.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I altered the pattern using Nancy's book. No other changes. Love the results!!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes and Yes!

Conclusion: I love the kits and classes from Craftsy. So nice and and so much fun!

Well, according to the pattern envelope, I should make a size 12 for my 34 inch bust. I used a 8 size and used the pivoting method to add the extra inches there. I also added ,by pivoting, to the waist and inch. Easy and worked well. Thanks for your comments and encouragement! Posting it was fun too. Now I just need to get the picture up and down.

First of all, congrats on your first review! Sounds like you had a great experience with this shirt. I'm a fan of Zieman's books, so what alterations did you have to make? Your picture just showed up! Nicely done. It looks gorgeous.
