Pattern Description:
Misses knit tops in 6 different variations

Pattern Sizing:
8 through 24

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Wonderfully easy. This is the second time I've made the wrap version of this top, and I did not refer to the instructions at all this time around. You can see my first version here.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The wrap front is very flattering on me.

Fabric Used:
Poly-lycra knit from, an online store I am really liking these days.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did my usual FBA to ensure proper coverage, even with the knit fabric.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I really like this top. I get positive feedback about it wherever and whenever I wear it. I'll probably sew it up again if I find the right inspiration in the right fabric, but for now two in my wardrobe is sufficient.

I highly recommend this pattern. It goes together easily and the instructions are simple to follow.

A great pattern for tops in your wardrobe, and simple for all sewing levels. What are you waiting for? Go on... give it a try!

Tia thanks for the FBA tutorial, NOW it makes sense and I'm ready to try my first one! Your tops look great, and again, thanks for the inspiration.

That is a really cute top. I enjoyed your blog and bookmarked your fba entry- very clear and concise. I have other directions but yours was so understandable. I also enjoyed reading the blog entries on the daughters pretty winter coats and the special daughter's involvement with the horse therapy.Horses are great friends for just about everybody especially those with special needs. I am happy she is getting to be in the horse therapy program.

I love your top. I need to tell you that when I first clicked your picture, I thought it was a pic of Tina Fey.

This looks lovely - I really like the print. I made one myself a few weeks ago in grey jersey, I need a cami with it and it kind of rises up at the back. (Which probably means I needed it bigger on the hip). Still a great pattern with a really nice wrap. Must try it again!
