(back view, I love the asymmetrical hem---high in the front and low in the back)
Time to Sew:
I'm approximating about 5 or so hours. Keep in mind I started it last year and can't recall the actual amount of time spent.
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
About a 3, not too complicated.
(sorta the side view)
Loose fitting top with assymetrical hem.
I made up the small.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yup, pretty much!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. The collar is what had me confused last year so in a haste I moved on to another project. I checked out the directions and stared at them a bit longer and it all made sense.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the free-flowing style
A bright green gauzy type fabric. It was very lightweight and a bit sheer.
(The top a few days before finishing. Here's a better depiction of the color)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I omitted the pockets
What would you do differently next time?:Nothing. I really like it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and Yes!

(The Koala was actually awake and eating!!!. At every zoo I've ever visited they've always been sleep. Well they do sleep 16-20 hours a day so I guess I just came at the right time LOL!!!)
(At the Edventures children's museum---boy that's a big kid!!!
(I'm such an obsessed sewer. Why did I check to see if the inseam stitches on the jeans were even? It's not even fabric but plastic. Sigh. I just can't help myself LOL!)
Cute with pants, short, capris and even a fitted skirt.
Nice pattern. Went together well and makes a great wardrobe addition!
