Pattern Description: See pattern

Pattern Sizing:plus size + regular

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? Sort of . . . I've made other shirts, but this had some odd instructions that I didn't "get" the first time through

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved putting the sleeves in - they fit perfectly. However, the collar . . . it didn't quite ease in and the directions made it challenging to think through where I was going with the construction

Fabric Used: this was a SPF50 fabric - I don't really remember the fiber content but it felt like parachute silk

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:none

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. It is a beginner pattern (except for the collar). It was great for my needs - a shirt for summer to protect my husband from the sun.

Conclusion: Basic Hawaiian shirt (or add long sleeves, as I did!)
