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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were pretty simple and the top goes together quickly.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love that it's a great summer-friendly design. I love that the top is airy and flowy. 

Fabric Used:
Firefly Orange Faux Dotted Swiss Polyester Chiffon from Mood Fabrics

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
It fit right out of the envelope. I love it when that happens! The pattern suggested using ribbon for the straps. Well, I could've followed suit, but I decided to created spaghetti straps instead. I used this Grenadine Stretch Silk Georgette that I had in my stash for another project that kind of fell by the wayside. But it came in handy for the straps and facings for this little number. As you see, I also used French seams and narrow hems. I used BERNINA #62 narrow hemmer.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
YES, YES and YES! I really need easy, breezy summer tops so I'll be making a variation of this again.
