Kimono-sleeved scoop neck tee divided into upper and lower panels. The hip is cut slim to make the looser waist potion bunch up.
Bands are used to finish both the sleeve hems and the neckline.
34-52. I cut my usual 34. The top has a loose fit; I'd probably tighten up the neck area in a future version to cover straps better.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The colors chosen for the magazine photo didn't appeal to me much, but I liked some of the other versions sewn up. Because of the kimono/cut-on sleeves, this top has an easy-sew appeal. Also, it is the perfect pattern to use some of those knit scraps which are enough for only half a shirt.
I like the shape of the neckline (it's also a little scooped in the back); and the fit is really good on me. I'll probably adjust the neckline just a bit to cover straps better, but otherwise it's good.
A random red jersey scrap.
And a dotted jersey from Girl Charlee.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't do my normal square shoulder alteration on the pattern piece; I just used up some of the seam allowance for that. I have very square shoulders and need extra armscye depth, but there was plenty here.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I really like it.
