I made the Shirred Top.

Pattern Sizing:XS to XL I made the MD

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?Extremely

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Nothing to dislike. Her pattern is very well written with help on fabric selection and sizing.
Fabric Used:ITY 90%Poly8%Lycra from

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I lengthen the top by 2 inches, however I didn't need to. That added extra shirring fabric around the middle section of me that I really did not need. LOL
Also, since I'm very narrow shouldered the bateau neckline was too wide and I ended up overlapping the shoulder seams to bring it in.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes and Yes

Conclusion: I loved the pattern and especially the fabric. It feels heavenly to wear. Please check out my blog Click Here
