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

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing, It's fabulous.
Fabric Used: Ponte roma Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't add a zipper.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might make another view. I love this pattern. It is very well drafted and went together well.
Conclusion: If you are like me and you've had this pattern in your stash FOREVER, take it out and make it up lol. You will be glad you did lol.
Here are some additional pictures:
The caridgan I made from a mans t-shirt. I could NOT find what I was looking for RTW, so I whipped this one up really quick. It still wasn't exactly what I wanted but it worked.
Added bias tape to each front edge section, sewed it down, then folded it over and sewed that side down.
And there ya have it. This was NOT my original idea. I saw it on a blog somewhere. When I find the link again I'll link y'all.
Have a good one!
