I've made this top twice more and really love it. Both times have been with a ITY knit with fun sparkles. This gold version has the tie in self-fabric and this version has the tie in the wrong side of the fashion fabric.
Women's knit tops with scarf collar attached with a buckle (A), through opening at center front (B) or tied in a bow (C). Sleeveless or with short or three-quarter sleeve.
I made the version with the buckle.
This is typical Jalie sizing. They include 2T all the way up to 22W. I made the size Q which is the largest child's size. For reference, I'm a size 34 in BWOF.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it looks like the line drawing and the model photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I love these instructions! At the beginning, I didn't understand what the hell we were doing. But, the faithful Jalie fan that I am, I followed them to a tee. At the end you end up with a long tube with your shirt inside and then you turn in right side out, and, voila, all edges finished and everything!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love this pattern. Jalie has great knit patterns. I did notice that they drafted their sleeve caps a little different this time. They used to have symmetrical sleeves but a notch off to the side that you lined up with the shoulder seam. This gave you more ease toward the back of the sleeve. Jury is still out on which version I like better. If the other one fits me better, I'll just copy off the sleeve and notch from the other pattern.
This is a poly/spandex knit from the Fabrics and Notions coop run by Ressy. I also made this top with it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any alterations. This is my normal Jalie size. It does seem like my shoulders are a bit wide for this doesn't it? It's not the pattern, I've had this issue a couple of times lately. Maybe I'm becoming a buff chick with wide shoulders but I don't think so. I think it may have to do with how I'm standing or how it's pulled.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew it again. I love it!! I'd love to make it with a red knit and black collar or a strip and a solid collar. Oh, so many choices!
Front (bad picture with double viral conjunctivitis) and the plastic backpack buckle.
