Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I did not use them, this pattern was a part of a sewing class. We used the basic pattern only, the sleeves, front and back. I adjusted the length of the sleeves on my own, we made our own necks, and adjusted the length.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I made a mock turtleneck, a low cut scoop neck, and a dress from this pattern. We used this pattern as a basis to make all kinds of changes. I made short sleeve, 3/4 sleeves, long sleeves, even ultra short sleeves.
Fabric Used: Knit stretch
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made our own neck bindings, turtlenecks, mock turtlenecks, made the shirt shorter, made one longer, made a dress from the pattern, made a scoop neck....
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes
Conclusion: Great easy pattern to start from. From this pattern I got so many compliments, people saying what was I doing and how fabulous looked. NICE! And to say that I made the outfit, bonus! This shirt gave me plenty of practice. I now know how to install a neck binding without fear! I love the class I am taking, it makes it so much easier and manageable. I did install the back of the neck to the front of the shirt. Lesson learned, I will not do that again. And a few places my seams were off. I have the Janome Cover Pro, but not used it yet. No time to learn, arghhh.
