Women's blouse with wing collar. 2 piece sleeves. Cuffs but no plackets.
I cut a 16. The ease made it about 4 sizes too big! Insane amount of ease!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Sort of. The neck willnot lie correctly in the back. Funny little fold from back neck being too small - which is generally opposite from my fitting issues.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Ok. I found no sleeve plackets odd.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I took about 4" off each side, 2" off each shoulder, lots off the sleeves and it's still baggy.
Way too much underarm ease - looks like wings flapping. Sleeve holes should be higher or something.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Not without several muslins. I like the idea so I might - but at some point it's just redrafting it!.
Should have been an easy basic shirt. The fit is horrible.
