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? very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the princess seams and belt carriers.
Fabric Used: Cotton stretch from Vogue Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did a narrow shoulder adjustment Click Here and a swayback adjustment Click Here
I did not sew the carriers to the blouse for versatility (to wear the blouse with or without the sash) I attached them to the sash. If you look close you can tell but I figured the average non sewer would not see this.
I used contrast fabric for the collar stand and under the pocket flaps.
Would you sew it again? yes I got the fit down and would like to make another view Would you recommend it to others? yes
Conclusion: The fitting book is Fitting Finesse, Nancy Zieman
Over all the blouse turned out better then I anticipated!!!
