Pattern Description: yoked v-neck top with loops and buttons
Pattern Sizing: 8-16, I did a size 16 on the second try cause the 8 was way too small. 16 is baggy and V-neck is deep.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? On the hanger, yes. The second try is ok. Need to fix a few things, but later after a wash and dry.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Steps are easy to follow, techniques were hard if you never have done them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Pattern is for a pretty flowing top. I like the loop holes and yoke piece.
Fabric Used: cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I altered the waist line to make it wider and added length. 2nd try, no alterations. used the loop guide, huge help. Didn't realize what it was at first.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, yes after becoming more familiar with the techniques.

This is not a pattern for a very beginner. I think once I wash and dry it, it will look well enough. Content.
