I picked this pattern after reading others reviews and like the different styles and lengths. I cut out the size according to measurements and stitched it together. It was not a difficult pattern and simple to follow. However it looked terrible on me, and was several sizes too big.

I tried adding a belt and thought about taking it in but it was never going to be flattering on me or something that I would pull out my closet to wear. I loved the fabric it is a multicolored knit fabric so I took it apart and completely reworked the entire top. I ended up cutting over three inches from the skirt part of the top, and redesigned the upper section that was easily 3 to 5 inches smaller than the original top.

As you can see by the picture that it really doesn't look anything like the original shirt but it is something that I will wear and I am very happy that I was able to save the material.
