Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? No, I used the pattern as a basis for what I wanted to make

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is my TNT top pattern. I have made it so many times, I no longer look at the instructions. They are, however, very good.

Fabric Used: Heavyweight ponte knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made Yes, I'm sure I'll use it again.

Conclusion: I was inspired by a French designer jacket and wanted to try my hand at "studding"! For more details and pictures, see my blog

Quite an amazing creation. Everything about it works: the scale of the garment on you, the number of studs you applied, the patterns you created with them, length of jacket and sleeves. Wow. In awe. Who needs Isabel Marant?
