I don't see a review of the Simply Sally Top pattern. It seems like such a neat concept, and certainly simple, so someone must have tried it!

I searched the reviews & the message board, but did not find anything.

So, any information to share from those who have tried it? I am going to be placing my 1st order with Style Arc and am wondering if I should include this on the order.

Definitely off topic, but just wanted to say that is nice to see you posting again. Prior to this month, I've haven't "seen" you in ages.

Update: soon I will decide when I will begin procrastinating.

Thanks! It is good to be back & 'see' everyone. Particularly smiling faces like yours.

I didn't really do any sewing this past year; just needed a break I guess. At least I also didn't buy much.

Anne! Welcome home. And no, sorry, I haven't used that pattern. It looks really attractive, but I (and my daughter) are too lazy to wrap and adjust things, so we aren't good candidates for something that requires imagination and decisions. I'd probably look as if my adult diaper had shifted.

hello Anne,
I had made that top years ago, haven't done a review, sorry. I made it with a 148cm wide knit which fitted the pattern pieces nicely (basically a triangle). I also noticed that the arm slits are too wide, you might want to make them smaller and increase if necessary, I also found that the wrong side shows on your shoulders. Now, unless I was doing it wrong maybe that is the way it is meant to be. It didn't bother me because I used a lovely cream colour, beautiful soft knit, so it was like a cozy wrap.

To be honest I don't know if others would like it. I did but I am a bit of a indie dresser and loved it. HTH, and hopefully someone else can shed light on the "wrong side" showing.
ETA - too many errors sorry -- Edited on 7/26/13 6:53 AM --

If it was a wrap bottom, Karla, you would really be in trouble!

Jilly - Thanks for the information. Based on the sketch, I am not surprised that the wrong side shows. (They should state that clearly, of course.) I am generally more of a 'classics' style dresser, so I am probably better off not getting it. Although in my polka dot silk fabric it would look pretty darn nice, I bet!
