Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I LOVE the different cup sizes and the different peplum variations! OMG who doesn't love not having to do an FBA!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added my normal 2 inches to front and back bodice pieces. Next time I will add either a invisible zipper or exposed zipper to the back, I'd also like to make the peplum longer for a different look. I didn't use the sleeve so I will have to do a sleeve adjustment if needed.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! I will use this bodice piece for a few other projects.
This is a great beginner pattern, it required minimal fitting for me and has many variations, I highly recommend.
