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?yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the seams in view A; but opted for view B because I wanted piping, and I didn't think the seams would show anyway because I was using a print.
Fabric Used: a linen blend. the fabric is a bit stiff, and scratchy. It is not lined.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: the pattern calls for 1/4 ribbon for piping; I had 1" in my stash and used that. I just cut it down after it was sewn on. close up of piping/ribbon
Also, the armholes are a bit low; if I were to sew it again, I would raise them about 3/4"
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I haven't worn it yet because I feel that the orange is screaming like a Caltrans/highway cone, but will. I'd like to make view A with a fabric that will show off those nice seams back view
