I have a pattern with gaping in the front, and your tip of taking out the extra is going to help tremendously. I have 1-1/2 inches to take out (fabric is a woven) and I'll do it in two to three spots per your suggestion. Thanks for the great review.

Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comments, everyone! Hi Adele and Bunz--I edited to add a pic of the pattern piece that I adjusted and I picked the editing option that pushes the review to the top of the list so you would see it. The edit is the most recent one near the beginning of the review. HTH...Em :-)

Looks terrific! I, too was wondering about the front. Did you take 1/2" off each side?

Hi Em's Summer - Your top looks great. I have this pattern, but have not made it up. Would you please describe how you " pinched 1" out of the front neckline"? I'm having difficulty visualizing this. Thanks, Adele

Hi Ruthie-This pattern is for two way knits, and it's very fitted, so I would suggest that you measure yourself and the pattern before you cut. It's better to cut too large than too small because you can always make it smaller. Just be sure that you cut your armscye to fit otherwise you might end up with awful low armholes. I strongly suggest that you make a muslin first because once you tweak the fitting issues out of the pattern, you'll have a great pattern and a great blouse! I love surplice tops and now that I have a pattern that's been tweaked to fit me and that's really fast and easy to sew, I'm definitely making more with this pattern. HTH...Em

I have this pattern and wondered about sewing it, but the sleeves look quite narrow and my upper arms are chunky. Would I need to widen the sleeve somehow?

Looks very nice. Good tips for having a more wearable top. The pattern has a lot of different other views as well.
