OMG, I sewed this pattern in 1975! (Give or take a year.) It was one of my absolute favorites and I wore it all the time. The fit was great and it was so comfortable. Your review has brought back lots of great memories. Thanks!

This is really cute and looks great on you. Love the vintage-y 70's fabric you chose.

I pegged the pattern as early 70s based on the price of $1.15! Love this top and your fabric is perfect. You have made yet another fabulous find for your own personal "The 70s Show." The hood both drapes/fits nicely in the down/up positions.

1974 is what is listed on the pattern envelope...this thing is two years older than me, but it is the "newest" pattern in my vintage collection.

I love the body shape of this top, much more flattering than RTW hoodies. You've done a great job. I also don't have a serger but you can fake it with the zigzag stitch on your machine: use the widest zigzag width and adjust the gap between stitches to suit the fabric. Place the fabric so the needle goes just over the edge on it's right hand swing. Test this out on scrap fabric and you will see what I mean. You can use this method on knits or woven and is especially great for edging lightweight fabrics.

I love it!! Beautiful hemline, and you picked the perfect fabric. I really dislike tight necklines, so this is great info.
