Pattern Description:
Tee with twisted cowl

Pattern Sizing:
1-4, 5W-8W. I made a size 4.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Very much so.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but the twisted cowl ,using this heavier fabric, needed a bit of finagling to get it to twist evenly.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The fit, for my body, is perfect; it has cup sizes up to D, which is what I used. Love the darts for my body, the sleeves are laid in flat (yay!), and the pattern is intended for the serger.

Fabric Used:
Cotton/Lycra stretch knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
My muslin dictated that I raise the neckline, so I brought it up an inch. Much better!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, and yes, although I would probably change the neck treatment- the twisted cowl is too distinctive to wear repeatedly.

Conclusion:
Love the fit, love the ease of construction-this is the first Silhouette Pattern I have made and I am pleased with the end result.

Really would love to see a photo of your project. I'm thinking about making this and want to see others' results.
