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? Very
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really liked the semi-cowl neck version
Fabric Used: rayon ponte knit from Joannes for the body and a fabulous rayon glitter knit, also from Joannes (it was regular $19.99 a yard and I got one yard 50% off)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I inserted the glitter knit into the center & neck & back. Worn with black pants or skirt, the color blocking makes it extra slimming. bonus! Oh, and I took an inch off of the sleeves as usual--oops. Had to add bands of the glitter knit
Would you sew it again? Absolutely. Hope to make the sleeveless version with cowl for a classy summer top or to wear under a jacket. Would you recommend it to others? yes
Conclusion: This was a great top to wear during the holidays when something festive yet a bit conservative was called for. I got a lot of wear out of it!
