Misses semi-fitted, buttoned down top with sleeve variations, front pleats, tie, ruffle, sleeveless Pattern Sizing: size 10-22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I made view A and yes it looks like the pattern envelope
Were the instructions easy to follow? yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the ruffle; I don't like the neckline. I think it's too wide.
Fabric Used: a 100% cotton from Walmart
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made a size 10 for the shoulders and a 16 for the bust and hips. I always pin in my back darts after everything is almost finished because I like it a little more fitted.
It says to stay stitch the neck but then says to stitch the neck facing with a 3/8 inch seam. This makes the stay stitching visible so I stay stitched at 3/8 inch instead of your normal 1/2 inch.
I slip stitched the facing down and serged all my seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
No I don't plan on sewing it again. I don't know if I would recommend it but it may work for someone else....just not me.
Conclusion: Just didn't like the way it looks on me.
