Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not exactly because I made several cosmetic alterations.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were fine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I was inspired to duplicate an Elizabeth McKay top - The Elizabeth Top. I bought the pattern because I thought the lines and proportions of it were close to the top.
Fabric Used: silk charmeuse (shiny side down)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: After making a muslin of the bodice for fitting purposes I experimented with alterations on the bodice neckline and ruffle variations until reaching an acceptable resemblance to the original. I eliminated the plackets and standing collar and made a new facing for the ruffled neckline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! I'm determined to get an exact duplication!
I like this pattern with or without my alterations. It can be dressed up or down and isn't too bulky like some loose fitting blouses and tops.
