Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes I think it does
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super Easy, I actually made this before last year in white so I did not look at the instructions this time but I remember them being really easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love how loose fitting but still flattering this is. I really wanted something I could wear with leggings and my casual boots and so this was perfect.
Fabric Used: Plaid cotton
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: The only thing I changed was the use of buttons, the fabric seamed a little western to me so I used pearl snaps instead 🙂
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Not sure since I have done this before as a shorter version so I may retire it 🙂
Conclusion: I love this look and it’s so easy and comfy to wear while still looking fabulous..lol
