Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes. I made view A
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes. The instructions are very thorough and easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love this pattern. It's very easy to make and fits my husband perfectly. I like that it's pretty basic so it's easy to customize. I also like that the seams are all neatly finished and the whole thing is very clean and neat.
Fabric Used:aA cotton/linen blend.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I added 1" to the length for my husband. I also finished the facing edge and the sleeve and lower hems with my serger, instead of turning them back 1/4 inch and stitching.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I am going to sew it again. I already have fabric and buttons picked out and waiting to be cut. I would recommend it to others.
Conclusion: Great pattern. Makes a really nice shirt, easy to sew. Love it! I posted more pics of this shirt on my blog here.
