The Pendrell blouse is a feminine semi-fitted top. Your choice of unique draped sleeves, flirty double ruffles or a classic sleeveless shell. A great addition to your wardrobe!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, Sewaholic is always easy to follow and this is my third!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love this pattern, especially View B. I absolutely love that it covers the shoulders without adding bulk under the arm. Plus the ruffles are so adorable and I think look especially cute with an unexpected pattern (i.e. my penguins!)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made an 8 on top and tapered to a 2 at the hip. I also shortened the pattern by 3 inches.
In the past I lowered the neckline because I've found the top hard to get on over my head. This time I didn't change the neckline because though it is hard to get on, I actually like it higher.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would absolutely sew this again and recommend it to others. I'm become semi-obsessed with Sewaholic patterns lately and can't stop making them!
Lovely, lovely versatile blouse. Very flattering and cute! More on my blog!
