Pattern Sizing: 10-18
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? Yes.
Fabric Used: Turquoise matte jersey knit from Fabric.com
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I cut a size 18 according to the finished bust measurements, but ended up removing ½” from the side seams. Also, I removed about 1+” from the sleeve circumference. Instead of just serging the other edge of the neckband and flipping to the inside, I serged and folded to the inside & stitched to neckline seam which would prevent the edge from flipping out. By folding the neckband it minimized the fullness of the cowl, however, I like the end result. All of the seams were serged and to finish the bottom of the blouse and sleeves, I used fusible hem tape and then final stitched.
Would you sew it again? I would like to try this pattern again and also thinking that it would be the perfect pattern for a relaxed tee. A great pattern and perfect for wardrobe building.
Conclusion: I am wearing it today and its comfortable and the perfect color to pair with beige/grey pinstripe pant.
