Pattern Description: Wrap blouse with collar variations, front tucks and tie ends

Pattern Sizing:8-18

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?yes. with modifications.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?No dislikes.

Fabric Used:African cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made View C but added sleeves. I added 2 inches to the length after reading other reviewers. I used the tie from View A because I wanted the tie wider. I also add a few inches to the length of the tie. On the brown/tan version I used a contrast fabric for the facing, collar band and sleeve cuffs.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely sew this again.


This is an old pattern but I'm glad I held on to it. It's a keeper.
