Fabric:Rayon-Lycra Knit  [See other projects in this fabric]

Pattern Sizing:
I made a xs in the shoulders and a M in the hips.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so, although hers appears to be less fitted to the body than mine.

Were the instructions easy to follow?They weren't bad. This pattern is actually quite simple, it just looks confusing!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I liked the unusual style, and I was excited to try it. I wasn't thrilled with the binding method.

Fabric Used:lightweight rayon jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I had to shorten the armholes by 2 inches in order to compensate for the weight of the garment. I also lengthened the tank by 2 inches, so there is less difference in length between the tank and drape in my version.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I don't think I need two of these, but I do recommend it. Take it slow, and absolutely baste when it is recommended. Be prepared to cut on the floor, as the drape piece is huge!

Conclusion: I quite like it! My blog post may be found here.

Thanks for the review! It is amazing that I was considering giving up on this pattern today -- mid-sewing. Your review is giving me some hope and I will soldier on :).
