Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, wrap top has front extending into collar, and attached tie ends. A: narrow hem. B and C: wrong side will show on single-layer collar and front opening, and purchased bias tape for trim.

I made view B but decided to use the facings from view A.

Pattern Sizing: XS-M I made the Medium


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? The instructions are ok until you get to the collar/neck. It may have been me but it confused me. I ended up putting them down and doing it my own way.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the style of this pattern, I didn't like the instructions for the collar/neckline.


Fabric Used: A lightweight suide like fabric from my stash.


Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I doubt if I make this again. I do recommend it but be careful with the collar/neckline instructions. They confused me.

Conclusion: Pretty nice pattern, helped me achieve the look I was going for.
You can see additional pictures on my blog.

This is a beautiful blouse on you, and much more interesting styling than the envelope.

How lovely. I never would have envisioned such a lovely top just from looking at the pattern front. Your complete outfit is awesome as well!
