Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing? Sure does! Looks like the one on the cover of the envelope, only I like my fabric better!
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy. I usually don't pay much attention when making something as simple as this blouse, but I had to refer to them for the sleeve construction.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the sleeves! I've been a fan of bubble sleeves for a while now. Remember this blouse? It's one of my favorites.
Fabric used: This is a gorgeous silk that I found at Hancock. I had it in my stash since last Spring. I hadn't used it because it was only 45" wide and I had about 2 1/2 yds. Plus, I thought the print was so pretty and unusual that it called for something kinda simple and I'd been waiting for the right pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Not a single one. It fit right out of the envelope. There was enough design ease built in that I did not have to do a FBA.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Probably not. I'm looking to sew a few basics for Spring and there are so many more tops I want to make.
Conclusion: I feel that I'm really going to enjoy this top. It's a great transitional piece that will work great in the Spring and Summer. I can see it now with white linen pants!
