B5493 The Result of the Friday Night Sew-In

A cute top B5493 is my result for the FNSI. It was all I could handle on Friday night after a busy week of babysitting and working. So here's the review:
Pattern Description: MISSES' TOP: Fitted tops A, B, C, D have front darts, neckline variations, side slit openings and stitched hems
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? The fact that it has the various necklines to choose from and it's an easy sewing pattern.
Fabric Used: A sheer poly-print from Joann's.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any changes to the pattern. I didn't use bias tape for the armholes, just self-fabric trim.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes
Conclusion: I like this pattern and will make it up several more times. It took longer to complete than anticipated, but it was because I was getting tired. But because I knew that a few hundred others were up sewing too, I kept going and was able to complete the top.

Jackie that blouse is soooo cute. Love the print and could visualize it with grey slacks, skirt or suit.

That is pretty fabric. I've been loving that pattern all summer but haven't gotten around to it.
