Cute top....Simplicity 2554

Finally, I made myself this cute  using simplicity 2554. This is a lovely simplicity pattern with different styles of top.....
My review goes.....

Fabric: Rayon Jersey from fabricland

Pattern Description: Misses Knit and woven tops...I made view F and the fabric suggestion was actually woven.....I didn't even see this part till I finished my ...and  it fits perfectly without any alteration.

Pattern Sizing: 14-22..I cut Size 14.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Almost, except that mine is longer and I used a contrasting neck facing.

Were the instructions easy to follow:  Super easy.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
(1)I lengthned the bodice by 1"
(2)I used contrasting neck facing
(3)Bond the hem by lite steam-a-seam and coverstiched it...

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love the pattern and top variation, nothing to dislike at all..

Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely..

Conclusion: Great wardrobe builder and great for every shape. Most importantly,  I love the color of my fabric ....

You all have a lovely weekend......
