Pattern Rating:Easy & Great for Beginners
Review Rating: Very Helpful by 3 people   
Pattern Description:
Pullover top in 3 different lengths has elasticated off the shoulder neckline forming a ruffle. 3 sleeve variations and optional shoulder straps and hem lengths.

Pattern Sizing:
Size Y (XSM-SML-MED) I made size Small

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I made a combinations of several views, but basically it did, yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy. Although I had to concentrate on which line to cut when cutting out the paper pattern of the bodice top!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love anything off the shoulder and gathered so I love everything about this top. I bought this pattern back in the 1990's but never made it until now. The sleeves are fabulous!

Fabric Used:
Polycotton Slub

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't really make any changes I just made a combination of various views. I was originally making view C but with long sleeves and without the straps, but then I decided I didn't want the elastic around the waist and then changed my mind again after one wear and put the elastic in after all! See My Blog for photos of both.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will definitely be making this again, it will be great for a holiday! I recommend the pattern if you can get hold of one. This is from the 1990's!

Conclusion:
Fabulous pattern that doesn't seem to have dated at all! Love everything about it! Highly recommend for beginners also.
There is currently no pattern photo of it on this website but I have included one on my blog which you can find here
