Pattern Description: Peplum top with neck variations

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Great instructions, good for beginners.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like all the variations and how the finished product really looked like the picture on the front.

Fabric Used:Black cotton sateen from Joann's; leopard print cotton sateen from fabric.com

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:Instead of button back I added a 16 in. zipper. 16 in. zipper was kinda an awkward length--should've either done shorter (so the peplum had no zipper...not sure if I could get it on then, though) or 2 in. longer so it went the whole way. Still definitely wearable with 16 in. though. I also added a peter pan collar (collar from Lisette pattern).

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! This is my 2nd one and I'm already planning more--definitely going to modify the closure again though (maybe an invisible side zipper?)

Conclusion: Love this! Highly recommend.
