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


Were the instructions easy to follow?

Very easy. I have already recommended this to four people as a great starter pattern.
Even the illustrations were good when I almost got hung up on something. I turned my fabric the way it was in the illustration and it made sense.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

It reminded me of Danskin tank tops.

The armholes were a bit large.

Fabric Used:. Don't know, it was a remnant.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

No changes

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes. This is my nieces favorite style of tank and she loved it. I have already recommended it to others. This is the easiest pattern I've ever sewed.

Great review and great snaps! I'm about to make this and it really-really-really helps to see this top sewn and being modeled! You did a fab bit of sewing on it, it really does look great. Thank-you, I've got the confidence to try this now:)

Sunnie, this was by far the easiest pattern I've ever sewn. It's definitely tops on my list for beginning sewers. Even the diagrams were spot on. Let me know when you sew and review it. Thx...
