Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes, but better LOL
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes,
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I am into peplums right now so when Heather and I went through our patterns, this stuck out to me for that reason. I also like the front tie.
Fabric Used: Sheer fabric- I picked this up during my trip to the LA Fabric District. It was 1.99 per yard. I had 1.5 yards to incorporate within the pattern and I used almost all of it. I probably had just under a half of a yard left.
Main fabric: Quilting cotton. It's 86% cotton, 6% linen, 5% metallic and 3%polyester.
I picked this out to match up with the sheer. Because the sheer had a little shine to it, I wanted the main fabric to have a similar effect, so the metallic within the fabric sold me.
Purchased: LA Fabric District and Joan's
Alterations or any design changes you made: Yes, I added the sheer fabric as an overlay to the peplum. This was not given as an option within the pattern design but I thought it was a good way to incorporate the sheer fabric and to help it stand out.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes
Earrings: Mini chandeliers by Chaka
