Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
It did. Here's what it looks like on.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I stuck to the instructions and was glad I did. The top turned out nicely.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a very feminine top but has nice structure to it. It's also a great summer top because it's not fitted at the waist but is structured at the neckline.
I used a remnant silk georgette so I only had just enough fabric to make this top.
This fabric was bought for a scarf but I'm really pleased I have this pattern in my pattern stash.
I made a second version using a stiffer silk and it didn't sit nicely at all so the trick is to use a light weight, soft fabric.
I so love the sleeves in a soft fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I did a roll shoulder adjustment: took 2cm off the front shoulder seam and added 2cm to the back shoulder seam.
2. Once I made this top, I cut 2 inches off the hem. I didn't do this at the start because I have adjusted the hem on the tissue before only to find I mismeasured the hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I love the pleated neckline feature and no waist fitted for an elegant summer top. If you have this pattern, use it when you're planning your summer wardrobe.
I'm very likely to be on the look out for more appropriate silk remnants for future summer tops, if the colour and price is right)
