Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The front and the back is all one pattern piece, which requires a very wide fabric. I was going to make it in a narrower fabric and split the front from the back where the side seams would normally be, it would have worked fine, but I didn't actually need to do that in the end, this neon bring cotton was wide enough.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I don't know how they could have been any easier, there are only two pattern pieces, 3 pieces of fabric total!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's simple, casual, I love it!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the finished garment? I haven't finished any of the raw edges. I was thinking about using a folded strip on the front around the neck edge, a bit like View E. I still might depending on how much fabric there's left.
There's a few more pictures on my blog
