Simplicity 1316 was used for this multicolor blouse

pr4  pr8

the fabric is a poly knit blend from Hancock's, I found the pattern true to size, although it is long enough that it can be shortened & still work nicely, I know this because I used this same pattern to make a blue & black color block blouse & the black didn’t give enough stretch to accommodate the blue so to keep from starting over I accommodated the black, cutting it to give a straight edged bottom,looks like I have on a jacket lol! there’s  a blue panel in the back as well

Pattern Description:Simplicity top

Pattern Sizing: 14-18

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?yes great for beginners as well

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked how quickly it came together & the different options it has to give

Fabric Used: knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: the pattern was true to size

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes I have also made the color block version & I would recommend this pattern to beginners as well as advanced sewers who need to make something quick with a nice outcome

Conclusion: this will become a favorite to sew as it was true to size & can be sewn in many different versions
