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: Very easy, I followed it throughout because I wasn't just in the mood to use another technique , great instruction and easy to followPattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
(1) I lenghtened by 2"
