Pattern Description:
Loose fitting kimono style top with short sleeves
Pattern Sizing:
4-16. I made a 12.
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?
This is a very simple pattern consisting of a front, back and neck facings. I like the simplicity because it's easy to change and make over again. The pattern didn't include seam allowances.
Fabric Used:
100% Cotton Voile from Fabricmart Fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lowered the neckline 3/4" and added embroidery to the front and crochet trim to the neck and hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would definitely sew this again.
Conclusion:
For more details on how I did the embroidery and construction, visit my blog.
