Misses knit tops with surplice front or plain front and sleeve variations.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Alot like, if you use your imagination.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Mostly, except the part where you make the tucks at the collar. Honestly, I could not get mine to do what was in the instructions, so I kindof just pretended on that part. The print and fabric were forgiving, so you can't tell. Maybe I will get it next time?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I LOVE THIS PATTERN SO MUCH. Why?
RUCHING - hides figure flaws and adds curves to my straight figure.
SLEEVE LENGTH - hides big upper arms, and lengthens the silouette.
NECKLINE - MODEST!!!!!!! Yay! Double Yay! Can't say enough Yays on this one!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added the skirt from Simplicity 3775 and made a dress
I shortened the bodice by about 2.5 inches so that the waist seam would fall in a flattering place.
I did a little fitting. The pattern seems to run largish.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely make this my go to pattern for a surplice front bodice. It is absoulutely flattering and modest. No worries about gapping, or needing to wear a cami. I can wear this with confidence to work, church etc, but it is flattering and cute enough to wear anywhere.
