There is no description on the package but I would say Misses' tops with shoulder strap and hem variation with simple palazzo-style pants in six sizes. I made version c.
Six sizes from 8 to 18 and I cut at the 14 line.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I believe so. In fact, I think mine is better, especially in the purple paisley print.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
From what I scanned they were fine. But this top is actually easy to put together with out them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the hem line especially.
In fact that was the only reason I bought the pattern in the first place. It has been the stash for a while but now I have a fabric and a push (contest) to get this top done. Dislike? Ummmm, this is not a dislike but a sewer-b-ware: If you use sheer or semi sheer fabric, don't skip the top bodice lining; Unless of course that's the look you are going for. But I will be wearing this top out and about and do not need anyone looking at my headlights. (The pattern does call for lining. I just thought I'd put my 2c in. Because I plan on making this for a nightee, which will be sheer.)
A poly charmeuse but it feel like a little cotton is there...
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No design changes, no alterations. I did use a solid fabric for the lining. It is a tad bit heavier than the fashion fabric. I'm trying to use the stash and I really like the feel of how it came out. t is not cold against my skin when I first put the top on.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I plan on sewing it again for a night shirt to go wth some night shorts in a red and white heart satiny fabric, but about that later....
Recommend - sure.
Next time I will widen the straps - personal feelings not the pattern.
