Pattern Description: MISSES' TOPS: Close-fitting.

Pattern Sizing: Combinations: Y(XS-S-M), ZZ(L-XL-XXL)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't need them but I read over them and they were good.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like this modern spin on the basic "T-shirt". Split sleeve, draped neckline and elastic waist.

Fabric Used: Bamboo Knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No design changes. The pattern does have a lot of ease so I cut according to the flat pattern measurements rather than the size indicated on the pattern to get the fit I wanted.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would definitely recommend this to others. I may make this again in the future but I have lots of others I want to try.

Conclusion: Definitely and easy and versatile pattern. Great for beginners.
