Pattern Description:
Loose-fitting blouses have neck/front bands, yoke and front sleeve (cut on crosswise grain of fabric), no shoulder seams, back pleats and narrow hem.

Pattern Sizing:
I made size 2 this time.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did. Sleeves look longer than the photo, but that's because I have short arms.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were, but I didn't follow them because it was my second time. I followed what I remembered from the first time.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the shoulder the look of shoulder and sleeves.

Fabric Used:
This time I used polyester georgette, and it's a little thicker that my white one.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Nope except making it smaller.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I do recommend to others.

Probably not. I already made two using this pattern. ~.~

This pattern and McCall's 6650 are my favorite top patterns. I already made two each. Probably more if I have more time. ~.~ They are pretty.
