What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
nothing to like or dislike really this is quite an easy pattern.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes they were.
I added my usual FBA and broad back - should have made the blouse a little longer (I prefer them longer) but I was sort of rushing and forgot until it was too late. However saying that its still fine and can be worn tucked in or worn out.
One extra change I made was the addition of a tie - I basically took a 6" wide piece of fabric cut across the grain and folded it in half, stitched and turned it right-side out. I can just add it if I want to give a different look to the blouse.
This blouse will work well with my Navy Blue pants I made recently and will also sit well with my melon and grey colour scheme for the 2011 6-piece Autumn Collection (6PAC) sew-along (between August and October) on the Stitcher's Guild forum.
