|Pattern Description: Stylish V-neck top, raised neckline at back, with or without sleeves|
View A has a zipper at front neckline for more coverage.
I am going to use this pattern for the contest of one pattern,many styles I plan to use view B with long sleeves
I used view B , in the spirit of the contest with long sleeves only
Pattern Sizing: from child to plus sized adult
I am plussized, very irregular
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes, although I ended up not looking anymore
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like having more seams in a sweater pattern so that I can better adapt it to my shape
Fabric Used: Many looks gives many materials
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I had a muslin made that I have reviewed and after that I adapted the bustline and the armscye
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I did now six of them, so I'll wait making it again, but I can fully recommend it
Conclusion: Nice to do an OPML contest, but one issue left: Now to find and sew fitting skirts.....
There were many constraining rules in this contest, but I learned not to be let down by that and adding extra materials when I din't have enough amount of remnant pieces.
Synthetic,very soft bold knit,printed, not much recovery.
I was afraid that the neckline could loose it's shape, so I added an elastic in the inside of the neckline. I sewed the upper frontpart by hand to be sure og a smooth result
Again a bold knit., better recovery. Now a solid colour.
Ornamented with beads.
This is made of a double layer of mesh. I added ruffles (made myself, augmented with elastic ruffletrim) on sleeves and neckline.
Now it looks more like a blouse
Coton jersey , ornamented on sleeves shoulders and back with a wide non-stretchy lacetrim
A soft lycra body and sheer soft mesh sleeves
Here the laying on the fabric is clearly the difference.
This top has edgings of lace elastic, in the centrefront with a bow. The edging was fixed with a decorative stitch of the sewingmachine
