Does it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were straight forward
Likes: The off the shoulder neckline and the casual feel.
Dislikes: none really, expect it may be a little too full.
Pattern alterations or any design changes made: I did a 2″ hem instead of the 4″ hem that was called for in the instructions.
Would I sew it again? Yes, this is my second one actually. I want to make the top.
Would I recommend it to others? Yes
Conclusion: I really like they way it turned out!
