Pattern Description: T-shirt fitted at the shoulders and flaring at the hips, with elbow patches. Short, long and 3/4 sleeves included in the pattern.

Pattern Sizing: 34-46

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? They were very good. They included advice for sewing with knit fabrics.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? At first I wasn't sure I likes the shape, but it grew on me as I saw people making it up. I like the long sleeves and the elbow patch is fun. The neckline is graceful but not immodestly low. No dislikes.

Fabric Used: Sweater knit from FabricMart and metallic doubleknit from Mood for the neckband.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I blended between several sizes based on my measurements.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't know. There are a lot of knit tops out there. We'll see how much I wear it. I do recommend it. It is a very current shape and easy to sew.

Conclusion: A quick and easy, stylish knit top. And the pattern is free! What's not to like!?

What a nice-looking top! It is anything but baggy, and certainly does not hide the fact that you are are of the feminine persuasion.
