|Pattern Description: New from the Spring 2012 Eileen Fisher runway, this beautiful cowl neck knit top is perfect on every shape and size. The cup sizing is built into the neckline so there are no darts to stitch. The button-up front is faux, so there is no need to worry about making button holes in your knit fabric. This pattern is for 1 or 2 way stretch knits and works with all kinds of knit weights. Silk knits, rayon knits, and cotton knits work well.|
Pattern Sizing: All sizes are included in the envelope, from 1-4 and 5-8.
I cut a size 4.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? My version looked somewhat like the envelope, but I made a modification.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, Silhouette patterns are almost always easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the look of the front of the blouse, as it is a modified cowl neck with good front drape.
Fabric Used: I used a red rayon knit from JoAnn's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Instead of making the faux button front by lapping the right over left, I just sewed to front seam and omitted the buttons.
Would you sew it again? Yes, i will try the pattern in a woven using the suggested lapped front with buttons - possibly a silky fabric in the front with a knit back for a more comfortable fit.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I recommend this pattern to anyone who wants a stylish cowl neck top.
Conclusion: This is a cute top that is a great wardrobe builder. It is a quick and easy garment to construct with lots of design possibilities.
