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, the printed instructions were clear. However, I would recommend that you read them in conjunction with notes on the sewalong on the Closet Case Files website. There are points covered in the sewalong that aren't in the printed instructions, which I found handy to know!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?A great design offering both coverage and an opportunity to highlight your good bits! And all those gathers gloss over any lumps and bumps!
Fabric Used:Swimsuit lycra, and black swimsuit lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None at all. I made this exactly as seen on the packet!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I would definitely recommend this pattern, especially if you are a bit intimidated at the thought of making a swimsuit. It's not that hard, really - you don't even need a serger.
I'll definitely revisit this pattern when the need arises.
If you would like to make your first swimsuit this is the one to make. A lovely pattern.
