Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? For the most part, yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I'm a fan of Emma Seabrooke's knit tops and this design reminds me of her aesthetic. I'd been looking for a good match for the odd fabric I had in mind.
Fabric Used: I call it denim lace. Basically, it's a stretchy mesh with frayed denim flowers loosely sewn on with multiple thread colors. I've had it over a year and love it!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:For some reason, the bottom front ended up being peculiarly shorter than it should have. I'm still unsure about why that happened. I ended up cutting a new piece the width of the front and about 4" in the middle, tapering to nothing. This was sewn to the bottom front and pretty much disappears to the eye when wearing. The result is a milder hi/lo hem and looks a bit more like a poncho, I think.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will sew this pattern again, likely the draped neck view, which is the one I was originally drawn to. In the end, I just didn't think the denim lace was drapey enough, although I may have been wrong about that.
Conclusion: In my pictures, I'm wearing the pullover on top of a close-fitting red knit sleeved top. Photos were taken at the ETA Dallas last weekend for which the weather turned cold. My intent is to wear it this summer over a cami/tank/sleeveless knit top. I kind of like the way it looks over the red, don't you?
