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, the pattern called for clear elastic on the sleeve and the arm -hole , but I interfaced instead and really like the look .
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Made few, they are:
Lowered the armhole by 0.5" because I read on PR that the AH is a bit tight
I lengthened the hem by 1"
Reduced the hem width to 3" instead of 41/4 the pattern says
I interfaced the hem line and
Used 1/4" steam-a-seam to finish the neckline and the hem for a neat finish .
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Very easy and flattering design, nothing to dislike.
Would you recommend it to others?Yes great for beginners and flatters every shape, it's a definitely keeper......
