Simplicity 2636

Pattern Description: Women's pants, skirt and shirt with sash. I made the shirt-View A. The front and collar are all one piece. There are upper & lower back pieces that have pleats that meet when sewn together which give a little shape to the back. The sleeves for this version have bands that when applied to the sleeve form a vent.
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
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes. I've had the pattern for awhile and finally got around to it, LOL.
Fabric used: A rayon print that my daughter (the one who does not sew) gave to me.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I plan to make the sleeveless version. I do recommend it.
Conclusion: I like the easy styling of this pattern and that it could be sewn with no major changes. It'll look great with slacks or a straight skirt.
