Pattern Description:MISSES' TOPS: Close-fitting, pullover tops have collar variations and narrow hem. C and D: button trim.
Designed for medium weight moderate stretch knits.

Pattern Sizing:A5(6-8-10-12-14), E5(14-16-18-20-22) I cut a size 10 and did an FBA.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, except cuter. ;)

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. I just glanced at them, but they seemed pretty straightforward.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The tops are cute and easy to make up. However, I think there is an excess of fabric in the lower back. I added a shaped CB seam for the second shirt.

Fabric Used: A drapey rayon knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did an FBA and added a shaped center back seam.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, it's very cute and easy to make. It's basic but not boring.

Conclusion: Cute and easy. I like that the tops have a nice length and would look cute with leggings, jeans, or tucked into a skirt. I like that the collar on views D and C can be dressed up with interesting buttons. I will sew it again when I'm looking for a quick project. More pics on my blog post!
