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
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
it's fast! This really is a very flattering top - but it's hard to capture how nicely it drapes on camera.
Fabric Used:
ity jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added a band to the neckline rather than turn and sew, I fused the hem with steam-a-seam light. Next time I'll shorten the side drop a couple of inches
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes and yes
Conclusion:
nice fast sew - and a great lounge top that can be dressy or casual
