Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Ive made this top a few times before so I know the instructions by heart. For intermediate & advanced sewers, instructions are not necessary.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love how easy this pattern is & how great it looks on. It looks good in a plain fabric as well as a print - so versatile. It also uses very little fabric!
I used a bold black with white polka dot in Polyester Chiffon. For some reason, Im all over polka dots at the moment...hmmmm!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I fully lined my version which actually makes the construction of this garment easier to put together. It meant I didnt have to struggle with armhole areas & top stitching along armholes. The only top stitching I had to do was along the neck tie area.
I hemmed the lining on the inside & instead of hemming the chiffon, I did a rolled hem leaving it loose & easy to move.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably shouldn't but I probably will Its easy, quick & instant gratification....
