Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Somewhat, considering that I had a totally different sleeve design.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very helpful.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit, the side darts, and the elastic waistline, as noted in my first review of this pattern.
Fabric Used: Woven cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used the referenced petal sleeve tutorial from PR and this tutorial as well to draft and sew petal sleeves:

I also added width at the sides in the hip/stomach area. I omitted the back seam, as I didn't need the opening any larger and I didn't think the back seam was essential for fitting on this particular top.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is already my second make, I have another one finished, and so I think I'll take a break, but I can see revisiting this in the fall for the long sleeve version. I'd also like to try the version with the collar. I'd recommend it for anyone in need of a nice easy summer top to make.
Conclusion: Another winner! I love the way the sleeves turned out; for a slightly blurry close-up, Click Here
