Version A top with gathered neckline. collar has back tie extensions, cut away armhole Pattern Sizing:
Size 14 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, however as per one of the other reviewers, I would take special note of the collar placement markings as these are VERY important & not to be glossed over. The first top I made like this I glossed over the instructions & regretted it at the end as I had gapping on the armhole area...not cool. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the simplicity of this pattern. Fabric Used:
bright limey green satin Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I have made a few variations of this pattern & used the bodice as a basic for all sorts of ideas on the collar. One version which I particularly love I turned the collar tie to the side so the extentions fall over the shoulder - very pretty. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes, & i keep sewing this top.my husband must be so sick of me wearing the same pattern. I guard this pattern with my life!
Of course I would recommend this pattern to anyone. really great for beginners. Conclusion:
Purchase this & give it a go. Its really comfortable. Can be worn as a casual top or an evening top just by changing the fabric used.
