Pattern Description:
Misses top with sleeve and trim variations.

Pattern Sizing:
4 - 16

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I made view A. I found the instructions very easy to follow. There are alot of pieces to make up the sleeves, but as long as you mark everything properly, it's not a problem.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the sleeve armhole bands and the various sleeve options. Especially the cute little ruffled sleeve option!

Fabric Used:
Quilting cotton.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I sewed a size 8. This was my practice muslin so I decided to use a cute cotton print I had been wanting to use and make a pair of pajamas from the muslin. I shorted the blouse about 4 inches and eliminated the ties it calls for in the back.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. Others rated this as a Mediocre pattern, but I thought it was ok. Sure, there are alot of pieces for the armhole bands, but that's the feature that makes it a unique blouse I think. As long as you mark all of the notches and dots, matching everything up is fine. It is a bit boxy, but adding the ties in the back could help with that.

Conclusion:
A cute, summery blouse with four different sleeve options. More views and info on my blog.

Cute! I agree with you on this pattern. I made this up a couple years ago and thought it was cute and okay to do, sure a little fussy for the armbands but yeah, that's what makes it different. : ) Very cute out of the quilting cotton.
