Pattern Description:
Amazing solutions cut from one piece of fabric and quickly sewn with one seam only: Either a wrapped top or a strapless beach - and summer dress or a backless party dress. An elastic casing assures the good fit.

Pattern Sizing:
6/8-18-20

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I suppose, I really didn't need to use.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Out of the 3 ways to possibly wear this only the B view (over one shoulder) is practical. The A view (with the twisted neck) is unseamed to the navel, it kind of folds over for coverage, really. The C view (with v-neck) is too deep cut and you can't tie the tie tighter because of the underarms. And maybe it wouldn't be noticeable on some prints, but the 1 seam goes straight up the middle front, not so hot for the tropical print.

Fabric Used:
Cotton-poly

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lined with a batiste, I added a slit (in the 1 seam) so I could walk.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
no, no

Conclusion:
It will be fine for a swim suit cover-up for my Florida vacation.
