8-18, I cut a size 14. Since I'm a beginner sewer I'm not sure if the pattern runs big or if it was my error in not using the correct seam allowances,
because the top ended up coming out one size to big I think.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I used the bodice from view C and the peplum from view B. So looking at these two I would say yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes the instructions were very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I disliked the armhole facing and the method for attaching it. I'm wishing it was curved instead of straight because I had a hard time getting it aligned with the armhole opening. But I will chalk it up to being a beginner.
Black polyester crepe purchased from my local Fabric Mart.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added 2" to the bodice.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely be sewing this pattern again. I will trying making it with sleeve and also with the asymmetrical peplum. I would recommend it to others.
Not my favorite peplum pattern so far because of the problems I had with the armholes and sizing but it is a good one.
