Did it look like the photo/drawing once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Like: I really like how you can change the fabrics for the inset and the sleeves/cuffs. I cut basically to my measurements (size 40), and the sizing was right on.

Dislike: The sleeves were too short. I will add at least 4 inches next time to the top part of the sleeves. The length of the cuff is nice, so I won't change that up.

Fabric Used:
I used a heavy knit and a lighter brushed lycra/knit. I think lighter knits would work better with this pattern, as the sleeve is supposed to poof a bit.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not use elastic at the cuffs as my lycra knit had plenty of elasticity to it. The directions were not the best (of course you expect that!), so I just gave up and put it together how I thought it would go. That worked for the most part.

I didn't interface the inset as my knit was heavy and it didn't need it.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, with the sleeve adjustment.
