I used view B
Pattern Sizing:
I cut a small
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did ;)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow. Only four pieces in the pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the way it comes together very quick. No thinking involved. my only peeve is the neckline and armholes are folded in. For a more finished look I recommend binding. I've also made one with a knit fusible tape. That was really great.  Saved time making bias tape. Just be sure to clip the curves so it lies flat.
Fabric Used:
Jersey ITY from my fave place Girl Charlee. Are you surprised lol?
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Not much. Only stablized the neckline and arms. I would suggest adding length to the bodice if you are bustier.  Im a 5'1 with a 34B. So the small worked perfect.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Most definitely.  Its very in right now and perfect for the season. I 've made two and plan on making more.
In the end I highly recommend this pattern. For not only its style and versatility but its ease and short amount of time it came together.  
Thanks for checking out my review. Happy sewing!! ;) 
Here's a small pic of the other one I made using more Girl Charlee fabrics.
