|Pattern Description: |
Misses' sleeveless tops, are fitted or semi-fitted with back-button closure, have bust darts or gathers with empire waist, strap and upper edge variations, can be made with side slits, elastic waist casing, lace and ribbon trim.
I made view A, the semi-fitted top with bust darts.
I sewed in size 12, with side seams being 10.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it is similar but without ribbon and lace trim.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were very detailed.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how fast and easy it was to make it.
I love the back buttons.
There is nothing to dislike.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Side seams of the top were stitched in one size smaller.
The bust darts have been lowered by 1/2" and the trim omitted.
The top has side slits and wider buttons.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others
I would like to sew this pattern again and try for next summer the version with an elastic waist casing and a flounce at the upper edge/strap (views B and C).
I would recommend this pattern to anyone who loves tops that button down the back.
Sleeveless top super easy and simple to construct.
