Fabric:Interlock Knit  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: Several different knit tops - wrap front, twisted front or scoop neck with gathers at the front of the neck, and several sleeve options.
Pattern Sizing:8 - 16 (K5) I cut size 14

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?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I've made the wrap front top twice. The first time with the long bell sleeves in a heavier knit and I love it. This time I used the wrap front but the short cap sleeves from view D. The front is not too low; I did tack the too fronts together where they cross.

Fabric Used:A $2 knit from the thrift store.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made the wrap front but used the cap sleeves from view D. I did tack the fronts together where the cross over to hold them closed.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'm sure I will sew this view again. I don't recommend view D the scoop neck - at least on my version the gathered part layed straight across and looked weird. May have been my fabric choice but I didn't like it.

Conclusion: Nice modest wrap front top.
