Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it looked like the drawing on the pattern envelope.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't use them, there were only 4 pieced

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Fabric Used: I particularly like the asymmetrical hem. There are no dislikes.
