Version 1 Back
(OOP) Close-fitting, pullover top B has front gathered into neck binding, stitched hemline and short sleeves.
14-20 - Cut slightly larger than a size 14 (just added a little extra during the cutting of the fabric)
This time, I decided to cut a 16 (I seem to be a bit fluffier than I was in March). I ended up taking the side seams back down to a 14. I figure it was probably the fabric choice last time that made it a little too close fitting.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Sure (due to the neck binding problem I didn't finish the sleeve/hem. I'm waiting to see if I can fix the neck first).
Yes! I understand neck bindings now so it was far less confusing than the first time around. I still need to work on gathering (especially on knits) and not stretching my collar while applying the binding.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Didn't use them this time. But yes, they're easy to follow - HOWEVER - the instructions for the neck binding are sort of weird. This time, I just sewed the ends together, pressed in half and sewed to the neckline. Then I serged and top-stitched the serged edge in place.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Simple, easy and straighforward.
Green t-shirt knit (?) from FM mystery bundle

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes.
You have to love a quick and easy 1 yard top that also has sleeves. It is probably a 2 hour project - max - from the time you lay your fabric out. Once I get the courage(!) to apply bindings using the serger, this will go even faster!
