Pattern Description: Misses pullover knit tops

Pattern Sizing: I made size XS in the neck and shoulders and size S in the sides and sleeve length

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much, but it turned out longer than it looks in the photos.

Were the instructions easy to follow? For the most part. The interfacing for the neckline needs to be cut so it stretches with the fabric. The illustration shows to cut it along the selvage, but use a knit interfacing and cut it going across instead.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Very easy and quick to make. Cute and comfortable to wear.

Fabric Used: A rayon jersey imported from France (ooh la la!)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I raised the underarms about half an inch.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will use this again, but will taper the sleeves and maybe shorten the length.

Conclusion: I would definitely recommend.

Cute! I pull this pattern out all the time and never make it. Now I have to move it forward.

The color and style are very good for you. I keep trying patterns like this, wanting to avoid a FBA, and I like the ease and comfort. But the patterns I have tried have too much fabric under the arms. And I agree that your sleeves could use some shaping. Still, at $2.99 (sale ends today, I guess), I might try this pattern.
