A cowl-necked top or pullover
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were brilliantly easy to follow, particularly since there's only 3 pieces to this pattern!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like cowl necklines, and the ruching on the sleeves and the asymmetrical lines created by the elastic in the right side seam create an interesting shape.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I usually do an FBA, but I didn't for this because there is a lot of stretch in this semi-sheer sweater knit. It's super warm, too, which surprised me because it is so lightweight and airy.
I sewed a straight size down from my usual size with the only change to the instructions being to extend the elastic in the side seam higher than intended in order to get a proportionate look for my short-waisted torso.
I found this to be very generously sized, and if you prefer a tighter fit, definitely go down two sizes. Since I'm entering that phase of life where extra stuff seems to like my waist, I left it a little looser fitting.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend this because it's simple to sew and a great twist on a typical pullover.
A very nice little surprise for my winter wardrobe. You can see all the pics of it on my blog
