Debtro, that's a really nice sweater. I've never sewn on a sweater knit. You did a really nice job on the v-neck with the trim you added. It looks like a RTW sweater. Thank you for the very intertaining review!

Very good review. Like to read hits and misses or trial and errors. Makes me realize that this happends to every one. Your top looks very nice.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments!! It's very encouraging to me! And yeah, regarding beginner experiences ... ugh, I have a tug-of-war right now about "new sleeve" or "Vogue 7799 sweater"? I thought no one would notice if I left the off-grain sleeve alone, but first question DH had was, what are those folds on the sleeve?!!! Ha ha, gotta love 'em!

Very nice results! Why do we have to have these "learning experiences" though? Sounds like we have the same fitting issues.

Your review was fun, and consoling, to read--sounds so much like my "beginner" experiences! As a beginner, I should plod along with the basics, but I find that's just too boring! Sounds like you might have a similar approach.

This is indeed a very well fitting shirt. I love the fabric too. I have this pattern, I wonder why I never made it. Thanks for the helpful review.

Debtro, I like your top, esp. the trim! I also much prefer doing to re-doing -- who doesn't? :)

Wow, I've made this pattern tons of times in interlock, but never thought about sweater knits, I'll have to try that, thanks! BTW, I have to add 1.5" to the sleeve length :)
