Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, however the PR file picture does not show all three views. Here are all views of the pattern
Pattern and Fabric Photo
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes, but I really did not need them.But if a new sewist would like to make this blouse, the instructions are clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I was disappointed to find that the collar was 5/8" shorter than the neck opening. When I made this blouse the first time out of expensive fabric, I was furious. I noted this on the pattern and did not get caught this time. I like the collar and the close fit of the body. I am not thrilled with the bat wing look of the dolman sleeves.
Fabric Used: a beautifully light, cool, cotton with a batik design. the batik crinkles the fabric giving it a plisse-like look.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: As I mentioned above I added 5/8" to the collar. Otherwise no changes.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?If I cannot find a good basic summer blouse pattern, I may consider making it again. I am planning on adding light shoulder pads to this blouse, and would need to do that if I sewed it again. The dolman sleeve is not the most flattering for me. But I am in a desperate situation with no summer clothes and the heat is upon us.
Conclusion: This is a quick make. a fast sewist can make two or three in a day.
Just remember to key the collar to the neckline before cutting. I have explained my woes with this pattern and why I am in search of a good blouse for summer, and the sighting of the Easter Bunny on a stand up paddle board on My Blog
