Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy to follow instructions that taught me new techniques
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the side zipper application! The bottom opening zipper makes the top very easy to get in and out of, and I found the instructions for the zipper installation illuminating. I am less enthusiastic about the bow, even though that is what drew me to the pattern initially.
Shot cotton this time, polished cotton previously
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I have made the pattern twice now, and the second time I left out the bow. I like the cleaner, less fussy look. I adore my mustard-colored version, but the teal one seems more modern and chic.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes and yes!
I love the versatile blouse pattern which is comfortable, fun and professional all at once. I learned several good finishing techniques making these, and the attention to detail in the patterns is terrific. I have only made the blouse at this point, but will likely try out the skirt sometime soon. I highly recommend giving this classic pattern a try.
