Pattern Description:
Loose-fitting, pullover tops have gathered front neckline, and back-button placket.
Pattern Sizing:
I made size 4
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yeah
Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Fabric Used:
cotton and silk blend
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This is my second one. I made view C, but I didn't make cuffs. Instead I fold the hem twice and inserted narrow elastic. It was way faster than making cuffs. My first one was a dressy one, and this one is more comfortable one. I wanted to make more tops.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Probably. view D with solid fabric.
Conclusion:

Buy this pattern for $14.36  List Price: $17.95   Add to Bag Add to Bag

Nice top and great fit! I look forward to the review of the solid version when you make it. I think a solid will show off the neckline pleats nicely.
