Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yep
Were the instructions easy to follow?The instructions are good
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like that it looks fancy but is easy to make. I like that the neckline is not too low. I dislike marking the tedious pleats! The whole key to this pattern is choosing the correct fabric. Where the pleats meet the neckline facing you will have 4 layers of fabric. My knit is medium weight and too heavy for this area. My first attempt with this pattern was a nice lightweight knit that worked perfectly. If you click on the photo you can see the other top. As mentioned in previous reviews, the neckline has to be tacked down to keep it from rolling outward.
Fabric Used:Have made two of these. The first one was a stretch rayon blend jersey knit from Fabric.com. The second was a poly knit from JoAnn's fabrics. The pattern calls for stretch knits only, and my knits were not all that stretchy but worked fine. Goes over my head easy.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I cut out a 10 but took in the sides 1". Also, increased the seam allowance in the shoulder seam a bit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I plan to make more of these. I am going to try the view with sleeves and experiment with some different fabrics. Conclusion: Great pattern. Choose a lighter weight fabric for best results at the neckline.
