Pattern Description: a wonderful assymetric shirt pattern

Pattern Sizing:XS-XXL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Not really because I chose to make changes

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes. A wonderful lesson in mitred corners. I love the finishes Linda uses in all of her patterns.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love love love this pattern. It is currently my favourite T shirt pattern. I had this great leopard print zipper that needed using so I let it marinate in my stash for a couple of years and then decided to use my favourite top and changed the front to a zippered front. I had to lengthen the pattern to use all of the zipper. I might lengthen it a little more next time. I am a long waisted 5'8" tall

Fabric Used:cotton sateen with some Lycra from the clearance bin.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I found the centre front marking on the pattern and left a 1/2 inch seam allowance for inserting the zipper.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Oh yes and yes. I already have to make another T-shirt.

Conclusion: I love the shape of this top. It makes a great jacket, blouse,Tshirt and probably a few more things I haven't tried yet.

Like the zip treatment. I've been thinking of trying this patter, but I must admit I thought it would be a bit bigger and baggier (oversize), which is what I want.
