|Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, pullover top has neckline variations, extended shoulders, shoulder pads, back neck slit, button/loop closing and cap, above elbow or long sleeves. Narrow hem.|
Pattern Sizing: 8, 10, 12 - I used size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not really due to my modifications and fabric choice.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. This is a very simple shell so the sewing is pretty straight forward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? A good basic shell top that can be made for various seasons.
Fabric Used: Linen/Polyester/Rayon blend in a chartruese colour purchased from Kerryn's Fabric World in Queensland.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
* Round shoulder
* Added bust darts
* Added fitting darts to both back and front
* Made the neckline larger so it could slip over my head, eliminating the back neck slit
* Adding an invisible zip to the left hand side seam for ease of getting the top on and off.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew it again, in fact this is the third version I have made in the last couple of years, and I will make it again now that I have it fitting like I want it to.
Long Sleeve version
3/4 Sleeve version
I can only recommend it to others if they like a very loose fitting top, or are prepapred to make the fitting modifications I have made.
Conclusion: With the modifications I have made, this top has turned into a TNT fitted shell top that works well alone in summer and can be worn underneath cardigans and jackets as the weather cools.
