I finished my version of the Ella Moss top and it was very easy to do.
I did use different colours for my top. Instead of black I used a navy fabric and the accent colours are obviously different too. Here is a picture of me wearing the top.

Misses' Knit Tops
6-16. I made size 6 (size 16 at the hips for more material, see below) though by my measurements I should have made a size 10. I find the commercial pattern companies have a lot of ease so I went down a couple of sizes. This way there was zero ease. The pattern was supposed to have 1 1/2" of ease.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes and no. It has the same silhouette mostly but I made some changes.
Were the instructions easy to follow?For the most part. The instructions for the twist were a little vague and I wasn't sure I was doing it properly but it turned out ok.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the pattern because it was almost the same as my inspiration top. It was going to be very easy to adjust it.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I changed the sleeves to 3/4 and went out to the size 16 at the hip to give some more flow to the skirt pieces. I changed the back to have an empire waist with gathers. I added 2 1/2" to the lower back piece to give it the gathers. Here is a lightened photo of the finished back so you can see the details.
For the lower front, I split the pattern into three pattern pieces instead of one.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is a very easy pattern that looks quite cute. The twist seems a little daunting but turns out ok. This pattern worked quite well for me.
