Knit top with princess seams.
I made view A sleeveless.
According to the chart I should have cut a 14. I started with size 8 and had to take in the back. A lot. Lol.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were ok.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the look of the top, can be casual or work attire.
Fitting is very easy with center back seam.
I used a remnant of mystery knit for my local market.
I had to be creative so there are seams at the waist of the side fronts and the side backs. Call it a design element.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the length of the pattern pieces at the waist removing 3 cm.
For the front pieces that seemed huge I removed 3 cm in width from the top and redrafted the facing.
All this I did before cutting by comparing with existing garments.
I finished the armholes by turning the s.a. under, no bias tape finish.
After trying the top on I removed a lot of excess fabric from the back neck and the back seam. The center back seam allows a great fit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will so make this again. Great pattern for work or for fun.
