Pattern Description: MISSES' TOPS: Close-fitting.

Pattern Sizing:Y(XS-S-M), ZZ(L-XL-XXL) I cut a Medium.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Somewhat. I did view D. The drape falls lower than on the model. I also made some changes. I did not put elastic in the hem. I just left it straight and hemmed it. I also extended the seam over the shoulder to cover more of my shoulder.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes. There are only 2 pieces to this pattern. It's a little tricky matching the shoulder at the right point.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?It's easy. It's works better with a soft knit. This is my second time making this pattern. The knit fabric I used on my first one was heavier and did not drape as well. You should know that the wrong side of the fabric shows on the shoulder.

Fabric Used:I am not sure what the blend is. I got it at JoAnn's. It's thin and slinky.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I left the bottom hem straight and sewed more of the shoulder seam.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes. This is my second one.

Conclusion: It's quick and easy.

Gosh I've had this pattern for a long time and never made it. I should dig it out because I really like your tops!

Both tops look great on you. This might be just the top for those who like some coverage of less than perfect underarms. Worth a look
