|Pattern Description: |
Loose-fitting, pullover top has back neck slit, hook/eye, and topstitching. Fitted, straight-legged pants (below waist) have back zipper. A, B and C: narrow hem.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes with the exception of the top (back) closure, I omitted it.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes! OMGoodness, this pattern is so quick to make. The instructions and illustrations are very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the top stitching detail, front and back darts and lower sleeve variation on the top and the slight bell bottom of the pants. No dislikes.
Top: Crepe/polyester blend with a higher polyester content.
Pants: Crepe/polyester blend with a higher crepe content.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No design changes. I made a muslin for the pants and ended up having to add length to the crotch. I also added a little width to the bottom edge of the top for a looser fit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I probably will not sew this one again. I have a top and pants that can be worn together or separately, dressed up or dressed down. I feel as though I've gotten the maximum amount of use from this pattern by sewing it just once. I highly recommend it!
