Pattern Description: This cleverly designed top has a pleat shoulder with a twist. Front and back shoulder yokes and an elbow length sleeve makes this garment a great wardrobe staple.
Pattern Sizing: Misses 4-30
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? I had a really hard time with the tuck detail. I had to read and re-read and walk away, and read again, but I think I got it. But once you get past that, it goes together quick. I wish I would have taken photos of the tuck process to post. I got hung up on the "3 A's" to bring together because I could only see 2, but I think the third is the seam line (you will understand this if you do the top).

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the tuck and the fact that it is so unusual.
Fabric Used: Rayon knit. (I think I'm still stuck on stripes )
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I cut the yoke against the grain so that the stripes would be vertical. I'm glad I did this and it didn't make any difference in fit or ease.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes, I will make this again. I keep looking at the yoke and sleeves and think how cute this would be if I used different fabric for those pieces. Even using a sheer.
Conclusion: this is a cute top, and I'm really loving these Style Arc patterns and their uniqueness. The instructions really give my brain a workout, but it is worth it.
