Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Absolutely, but a little longer. I made view D, but lengthened it for a dress.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes, I didn't trust them at first, but they worked well. Simple and thorough.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Total of 5 pieces, easy to put together. I cut and sewed this in less than a day.
Fabric Used:moderate stretch, sweater knit. I bought this at Golden D'or's big fabric sale last month, and don't know any more. Probably acrylic, since it is so warm.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I shortened the back above the waist since I am short. Instead of an FBA, I just left the length in the front and eased it into the back section when sewing together. I also narrowed the shoulders by 1 inch.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Oh, yes. I love the interesting collar. It gave me an opportunity to show off some vintage buttons from stash.
Conclusion: Great pattern for a beginner, quick pattern for instant gratification.
