Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, although I made a few changes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I have made this so many times, I no longer read them!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is my TNT shirt pattern that I have made DOZENS of times!
Fabric Used: Hand-dyed cotton shibori from Marcy Tilton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthened the shirt to above-knee level, lengthened the sleeves and added a regular placket, and added side-seam pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Oh, yes, I LOVE this pattern!
