Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, gathered sleeve top (View A).

Pattern Sizing: XS – XLG (I chose the med)

Did it look like the pattern photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes, it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were easy.

Why did you choose this pattern? I loved the sleeve detail. I am a sucker for drama.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have no dislikes.

Fabric used? A double knit with some texture from Fabricmart.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made. I contoured the waist a little so it wasn't very boxy. I am big busted by my waist small.

Would you sew this again? Yes, I might sew one for the spring or summer.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, though it is an out-of-print pattern.

Interesting top, both versions yours with the dramatic sleeve, and the pattern picture, I would have liked to see you wearing it. Very nice fabric choice.

The sleeves draw great attention. I too would like to see you model the top. The ruching looks quite complex.

Very nice- those sleeves have a very different flavor. I like the way you coupled them with those brown pants. Excellent sewing and easy wearing.
