Vintage 1940 reprint of four shirts
6 - 14, I made a 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
For the most part they were. I had to reread the instructions for the back facing a few times before understanding where to sew and cut.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the technique for adding the button loop onto the neck binding. It made for a very clean finish. I also liked using the sleeve heading for the gathered sleeve. It gives it an extra poof.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not include the bows on the sleeves or the shoulder pads.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would sew it again, to make view C or D.
I was worried this was going to be way to big in the bust because of the ease on the pattern, but when I have it on it looks great. I was worried making this pattern - as there weren't any reviews - so I didn't know if there would be anything weird with the pattern. This was pretty easy to construct.
