6 Misses' Tops with neckline variations & tie belt options
I made View C
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, for an intermediate sewer I did not have to refer to them alot however reading them over, they were easy enough for anyone to understand.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Dislikes : the top is quite short, next time I will make it a little longer & extend the band to fit more over the hip than the waistline....
I used a white with blue patterned polka dot silk charmeuse found in Holland. It was not cheap however it feels like a dream!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made the pattern with facings & all, no short cuts for me this time. The armhole areas were a little frustrating but that was due to my stupidity of using such a narrow binding.
I also used french seams this time around, thereby avoiding having to use the overlocker/serger & the bulkiness.
I cut this pattern 1 size smaller than what I normally would have as the previous reviewers indicated it ran a little big with plenty ease...
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would make this again. In a plain black it would work well as a good wardrobe builder for work perhaps...
Regan from Stitch in My Side Blog reviewed this pattern early-ish november. I fell instantly in love! This pattern would have gone overlooked had it not been for her review so I ordered the pattern immediately & started on it as soon as it arrived. Thanks Regan! You HAVE to visit Regan's blog, she has the best sense of humour & lots of sewing tips. I put her 'starch' tip to use during this project & im hooked i tell ya. why i never thought of that myself....
