Pattern Description: Blouse with several sleeve lengths and belt

Pattern Sizing: 6-12. I made size 8

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 a bad habit of not looking at the instructions and that was a real problem with this. The instructions were easy-if I would have followed them. I had to do a lot of seam ripping to get the front band sewn correctly-that was my bad, not the pattern's

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit of the neckline-wide and a little off the shoulders

Fabric Used: Cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made 3/4 length sleeves with no cuff or placket and I hemmed the blouse after I put the front band on instead of when the instructions called for the hem.

Would you sew it again? Yes, I will make another one for cooler weather.

Would you recommend it to others?

Conclusion: This is a great top that has a little different look than just a plain shirt.

I love the collar the most and weskit-like hem. It is such a great fit in the back waist too! Pretty shade of blue. This one is going on my wish list!
