|Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?|
Yes it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Pretty much, this was only my second project and though it took quite a long time to teach myself, I would recommend it to a newbie or a confident sewist. Definitely not the easiest project for a new person but it was a great way to start learning about alot of the pattern techniques
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought the pockets looked a bit big and I didn't apply the top tab for the buttonhole, I left it out. The yolks looked a bit old fashioned before I started but my husband thought it looked cool when all said and done. The sizing was a bit wonky, my husband's chest and arms were a size medium but I ended up making him a small and I am so glad I did. I also had to adjust the length at the end, which I should have done in the beginning...all part of the learning process again. I am making another version of the shirt now, taking into account what I've since learned.
Fabric Used: Cotton - gray
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: shortened, actually made a size smaller than suggested by the measurements. The shirt runs big.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, currently starting on version 2!
