Pattern Description: This is a very pretty summer top. It is easy and quickly to sew. It is also a very comfortable shirt to wear.

Pattern Sizing:I went up in pattern size, because this was the last one in the store. I thought I would have to customize it on my dress form but it turned out to fit nicely and a little bit loose.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?The pattern is true to the photo.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I have sewn two tops and will make a few more for this coming season. The instructions were easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It would have been nice if Simplicity would have given the customer more options on the collar.
Fabric Used:I used a very light weight cotton. The only problem was the fabric wrinkles very easily and it is not good for packing to travel.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

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

Iíve been waiting for someone to review this. Thanks. I came close to buying this several times. A sale pushed me over. I was a bit skeptical about the sleeve crowns based on the pattern photo but it looks like yours went in smoothly. It also gives me a better idea of the short sleeve length. Thanks again.

Both of your versions are just lovely and SO very becoming! I think Simplicity should add your real finished product to the photos of the pattern. Well done.
