I suppose it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, instructions were pretty straightforward.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any changes but I would if I ever make it again.
I am very short waisted and the elastic on this top sits a good 1-2 inches above my natural waist which is both uncomfortable and unflattering. I have to continuously pull the top down so that it sits at a flattering place. I also have to belt the top otherwise it looks like a nurses top.
I think the bottom is too short compared to where the elastic hits the waist. I guess now that I have already made the top I can see these problems in the Vogue model pictures above.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don’t think the top is terrible and the pictures make the top look better than I ever expected. I’ll probably keep it, wear it occasionally, but I don’t know if I’ll make it again. I do get tempted when I see the line drawing of the long sleeve v-neck version but there are so many other patterns that I want to try before spending the time to alter this one. I don't think I'd recommend it to others.
Decent pattern...could look better with the proper choice of fabric and a few alterations. More on blog.
