|Pattern Description: Close fitting, pullover, mock wrap tops|
Pattern Sizing: I made a 16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not really, but thats because of my build.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the neckline (especially, the gathers on the back neck) and the drapes. I didn't like how long is was or how loose the sleeves are.
Fabric Used: This pattern calls for a knit with 4 way stretch. The one I used had a kind of small pique texture.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any changes, except shortening, but I should have done an FBA on it. I guess I wanted to know what it would be like to use a pattern right out of the envelope!! Silly, huh?
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I think its a fine pattern for a tall slim woman, but if you're busty, do an FBA! I will next time! And I'll make those sleeves fit better. As it is now, I would never wear it due to the way the pulling on the bust distorts the side seams.
Conclusion: More. And more pictures at my blog
