Semi-fitted pull over top has collar, length variations and narrow hem.

Size 12, 14 and 16. I used the 12



I liked the fit and the collar options

Cotton knit

I like my tops a little longer than most patterns, so lengthened it and I always have to shave a bit off at the hips. Thought I'd just add this as well. I sew the front facing on the top first and then put the collar on after, as opposed to sewing the facing onto the collar first as the instructions say. I find it much easier this way.

I've sewed it many times over

It's a very old pattern (2002)and has since been discontinued, but it still remains one of my favourites and never dates.

Good luck with your new pattern, I hope you have as many years use as I have had! I just thought about adding something to the review, go and read the alterations or additions section, it might help you when it comes to the facing and collar!

Nice coincidence. I recently won this pattern on ebay. Glad to hear it works.
