Pattern Description: Pullover top, with hemline variations and two different bodices.

Pattern Sizing:Misses 4-16

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?Yes; easy, step by step instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the simple bodice in Views A & B.

Fabric Used:Cotton.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, I'd sew it again. In fact, I made two tops, with hemline variations.

Conclusion: After sewing a couple of these, I have become adept at applying bias tape to necklines and armholes. These simplified sewing patterns are way too quick and easy to sew. This is not a form fitting top, past the bodice; however, the comfortable fit and simple, stylish lines make for easy wear; a cute summer top to knock around in and stay cool, even for an old gal like me.

Answering schmammy's question: I sewed this top in a Size 16 without any adjustments. In times past, I had been making everything in a Size 18, but I'm a shrinking old gal, and suddenly Size 16 is a good fit, especially in the bust and shoulder area.

Love those tops! I had to put the pattern on my wish list now! Thanks for the review, and they look great.

I'm curious about your size choice and how the bust fit. Did you lower the dart? My bust point is usually lower (too many birthdays) and this is a common alteration for me. I like the simply style of this pattern---so similar to a couple of others, including one Vogue I've made. I love your cotton fabric choice!
