Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes - very easy and quick to make.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I made a size Medium, but probably could have gone down to a size Small. It's fairly roomy, but quite comfortable at the same time. I like the big collar and the flowing fullness of the hemline.
Polyester knit leftover from this project.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Since I was using the remaining yardage from a previous project, I had to work with the odd shaped fabric pieces that I had. I didn't have enough yardage to make both front pieces have vertical stripes, so one of them has horizontal stripes instead. Also, I needed to piece strips together to have enough fabric to cut out the collar in one piece. More of this process can been seen on my blog.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. After looking at other reviews on this same blouse, when I get tired of the flared hem, I'll just get rid of the flare and have a more columnar styled top and it will be brand new again! I see an alteration project in my future!
Super easy blouse and very comfortable to wear.
