Pattern Sizing: True to size—I made a 4 and it fit perfectly without alterations.
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 to follow, though I had a lot of trouble turning the loop inside out (I’d recommend just using ribbon).
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I made view D—peplum top (no lace yoke or collar) with cap sleeves. This pattern has lots of varieties and the peplum looks great. Only dislike is that the shirt closes in the back with 3 buttons, so you have to wear a cami under it.
Fabric Used: Light blue cotton from JoAnns. Would look great in a dressier fabric!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None, but I might try adding a zipper instead of the buttons next time.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, it turned out great (doesn’t look homemade) and didn’t take very long. Great for beginners!
