Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Absolutely!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Definitely, Alexandra writes excellent instructions that yield very professional results.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the professional finish and the separate shirt fronts for different cup sizes. I also love that the top is breezy without being tentlike or maternity-ish. The only change I would make would be to use an inside back yoke instead of a back facing next time. I would also raise the neckline if I planned to wear it without a cami underneath. It is too indecent to wear without one as drafted.
Fabric Used: Luscious tan and black dot silk charmeuse
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None since I was testing the pattern for the designer.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I may sew it again but it really isn't my style. I do highly recommend it to others who are looking for a loose, breezy top. The instructions are excellent and the finish is professional. The pattern is also very well-drafted.
Conclusion: Alexandra of In-House patterns has created another winner in my book -- a well-drafted pattern with excellent instructions that yield a professional and stylish end product. What more could you ask for?
