Pattern Description: This pattern is for a knit top with long sleeves and a front yoke detail. The neckline is finished with a facing. There is a similar pattern in the magazine with long sleeves gathered to a long cuff.
Pattern Sizing:34-52. I made a size 36 for my daughter
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? It looks like the technical drawing, allowing for my changes.
Were the instructions easy to follow?The instructions were good. I varied the construction by using the back facing piece as a pattern for a back yoke, and added clear elastic inside the upper neckline seamline to assist in having the neckline lie flat.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the yoke detail.
It is a good basic pattern without the yoke detail, and I also used the pattern for two other t shirts with different collar details.
Fabric Used: Cotton-lycra knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Fitting: Square shoulder adjustment
Design: Contrast colour for the yoke, and adding the yoke to the back as well.
Using contrasting coverstitch for the hems and around the bottom of the yoke.
Short sleeves as it is summer here.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I have sewn 3 versions, and recommend it as a useful knit top pattern.
Conclusion: A good pattern that lends itself to variation.
