Pattern Description: uniform scrub top

Pattern Sizing: xsm- xlg

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? yes, except for the neck line. I've since made several different tops and have changed the neck.
This is s Second top with a different neckline and gathers in the back
Second top

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? if you follow the instructions for the neckline, the neck ends up standing up too much.

Fabric Used: cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I ended up cutting the neck band on the bias and stretching it so that it would lie flat. Additionally, I pinched out 1/4 th of an inch where the shoulder seam is at the neckline which made it fit better.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If you can figure out the neck facing, you'll love this top

Conclusion: It's worth playing with this pattern. This is the third one that I've made.
