Very loose-fitting blouse has collar/sleeve variations, low armholes, and narrow hem Pattern Sizing:sizes 6-22 I cut a size 22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yeah - I think it did
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were easy to follow, but I would never call this an EASY pattern. It's got a two piece yoke, collar, arm bands, two two piece plackets and yards and yards of hem... most of which need to be hand stitched down. I was a relatively beginner sewer when I started sewing this I was pretty overwhelmed by the number of pieces. However - the instructions were good...
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?What I liked about the pattern was the loose easy feel to it - but in the end it was the same thing I disliked about it, on me. As a 'busty' girl with wide shoulders - when I add that extra 5-6" of fabric in that area it just feels frumpy to me.
Fabric Used:Cotton Gauze
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made it straight out of the envelope
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't think I'll make it again. But I think it could work on other people. maybe someone who wants to balance a small top w/wider hips?
Conclusion: Ok pattern w/ok instructions but not really 'Easy' as suggested on the envelope. Also maybe not suitable for all body types so make sure you like a lot of fabric in your tops.
