Pattern Description:
Easy-fitting, sweatshirt-style top with drop shoulders, crew neck and ribbing bands for the neckline, sleeves and hem.

Pattern Sizing:
I drafted the pattern based on my own measurements.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
n/a

Were the instructions easy to follow?
n/a

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No sleeves to set in! They are sewn into the shell with a straight line of stitching.

Fabric Used:
Sweater knit from Joann.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
n/a

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will probably make this again, but I will lower the neckline and shorten the sleeves and overall length.

Conclusion:
A fun, easy project with pretty good results! I blogged and posted more photos here.

TGWGWS, I am not sure...it feels like mostly cotton with maybe a little poly. It's a sweater knit. :) Thanks all for your positive comments!
