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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.. Extremely easy

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes.. It was too easy. lol

I used this pattern to make a "not so traditional" Nigerian outfit called Iro and Buba. See my blog for more images.
