Pattern Description: The Kirsten Kimono Tee is a pattern for a boat neckline kimono sleeved t-shirt with short sleeves, that is fitted (with negative ease) at the bust, but skims loosely over the waist and high hip.

Pattern Sizing:XS - 2XL. I cut a 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?Yes, and I really liked the explanation for attaching the neckline binding. It's the best around.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?This is a quick make, and doesn't require a lot of fabric. It's a great stash buster. The only comment I would make is that finished garment measurements would be very helpful.

Fabric Used:A viscose/lycra jersey.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I cut a medium based on my high bust measurement, then did an FBA. That's all.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I probably will sew this again. It's very quick, and I like the shape. Would recommend to others.
