Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, pullover top has bias front and back, and short, long or sleeveless options.

Pattern Sizing: 6, 8, 10 I used size 10, a normal size for me for Vogue patterns. I think the sizing is good.

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 have made this top previously so no surprises. That said, it's a very simple top to make and the instructions are super easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is my go-to pattern for a simple bias top. I especially like the way the neckline is made...the front piece has a self facing. The back has a decently-sized facing. You sew the shoulder seams, pivot at the dot and sew the facings together. It makes for a neat neck opening.
No dislikes.

Fabric Used: This is a silk cotton voile from EOS...semi-sheer with a floaty drape; tones of fuschia, dusty blue, teal, grape, white, carnation pink, lilac pink. I just purchased this in March.
I used interfacing from Palmer Pletsch on the back facing.
Thread from Superior.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added an inch and a half to the length on front and back pieces.
I added half inch each side to the upper back.
I added 2 inches to the sleeve length.
I used Stay Tape in the shoulder seams.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably will sew it again, and I would recommend it but I think it might be OOP.

Conclusion: This makes a nice basic bias top. I made this to go with a couple different jackets, one being this one that I made at the same time.
Any floaty drapey fabric would work nicely with this pattern. The last time I made this I used a silk crepe.

This is a beautiful top. I love the great neckline and fit on this. Somehow I had completely missed this one so I appreciate your review even more.
