Pattern Sizing: 34-52. I made a 46 through the shoulder and bust blending to a 44 at the hip. I found the fit true to size but felt the sleeves were a little narrower at the bicep than I am used to with Ottobre.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very like, although I used the longer sleeve option rather than the 3/4 sleeve as in the photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I did not use them as I've made raglan tops before.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? My favourite thing about Ottobre is that they offer a range of very well-drafted basics. This was no exception, as I found the pattern went together perfectly and looks exactly as it should. I have two tiny dislikes: Ottobre always seem to draft their necklines just a smidgeon too wide for me and this top JUST flirts with showing my bra strap, which I hate. Normally I just fix this on the flat pattern, but I wasn't totally certain how extend the shoulder line given the dart. The dart itself is my second minor irritation. I sewed it very carefully and spent a while trying to smush out the dart with pressing but I still have a tiny pucker at the end of the shoulder dart when I wear the top. I think this is partly because the sleeve is slightly closer fitting than it should be when I'm wearing it.
Fabric Used: Two shades of blue cotton jersey. If you are using contrasting fabrics as I did, you need about 0.7m of each colour.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used the longer sleeve option from version (B) of this pattern, the raglan sleeve dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I like this top a lot and will almost certainly make it again once I sort out the neckline issue. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a well-drafted basic raglan pattern.
Conclusion: A well-drafted basic with a couple of tiny problems that I'll fix in the next version. More on my blog.
