Time to Sew:
About 3 hours
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
A 2---it was super easy!!!!
Top with tiered flounces and unfinished edges.
I cut the size 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nothing to dislike at all!
A salmon colored lightweight, moderate stretch knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I only used binding on the neckline. The armholes didn't need it since it had 2 layers of fabric. Instead I serged the armhole edges, turned under and sewed down.
2. I had to take out 1.25" length off out of back middle flounce---beginning at center and tapering to sides. I'm really shortwaisted in back so that alteration was necessary so all the flounces would look equally spaced in the back.
What would you do differently next time?:
Nothing, I'd sew it up with my same alterations.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
YES, I'd love to have it in another solid color. It's too easy of a sew and the results are SO cute!
You can pair it with shorts or even a short, fitted skirt. My favorite pairing is with capris.
SUPER cute top and excellent wardrobe builder!!!
