Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very much so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Instructions and illustrations are excellent.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing to dislike. The pattern yields a very professionally finished product. It goes together easily and quickly. The style is very flattering. There is not excessive ease so the size chart is accurate.
Fabric Used: Inexpensive silky polyester, red with small white polka dots.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I had to let it out a bit in the hips. I should have graded out a size larger based on my measurements.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely! I think I will do the collared version next.
Conclusion: I am so glad I gave this indie company a try. I love my blouse and know I will get lots of wear out of it. From the drafting to the instructions to the finish to the style, you can't go wrong with sewing up this pattern!
