Pattern Description:
Pullover tops and dresses have neckline variations, and elasticized (seamed) waist. A: lower left side gathers and exposed zipper. A and B: loose-fitting . C: elasticized side seams on lower section. C and D: very loose-fitting, gathered (bias front) bodice. B and D: semi-fitted skirt. Stitched hem A, C and sleeves B. Narrow hem back neckline A, B and neckline/armholes C and D. I made view A.

Pattern Sizing:
6-14 and 14-22.

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? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No dislikes. I have sewn several garments from this pattern.

Fabric Used: ITY Knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Shortened zipper to 5 inches instead of using 7inch zipper recommended on the pattern envelope. This made the lower section more gathered and the zipper didn't bend near the waistline. In the first version I made the top of the zipper would pull away from my body and stick up over the elastic waist resulting in the need to readjust the zipper by tucking it under the elastic.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Since this is the 4th garment sewn from this pattern that would be a great big YES.

Conclusion:
Easy, Quick, Flattering-- definitely a TNT pattern.

Very nice - I have this pattern but not used yet - looks like a real winner.Thanks for reviewing. Is the zipper a fashion detail or could it be some how eliminated?

The zipper is a fashion detail. There is another view with a similar hem that does not include the zipper that might work.
