Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Other than the style changes, yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn’t really follow them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I am in love with peplums right now so this was the perfect style. I don’t care for button loops for my larger figure. I always feel like they come undone easier.
Fabric Used: men’s shirting from fashionfabricsclub.com
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did a narrow shoulder adjustment and a 1in FBA. I decided to add an overlap and do standard buttonholes. I wanted a longer sleeve for winter, so I used a TnT sleeve.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes!!
Conclusion: There are a few tweaks I need to do, take in the shoulders a bit more, adjust the overlap, but other than that, I love this blouse. It looks good with jeans and pencil skirts, could be made in either flannel or linen, adds a touch of style to a basic outfit. I think this will be a very versatile pattern in my arsenal.
