|Pattern Description: A cowl neck t-shirt.|
Pattern Sizing: 34-44. I made a 40, graded to a 42 and the waist, then to a 44 at the hip.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, but I changed the sleeves on each version. I made three version: A Pale blue short sleeved one, a navy blue long sleeved one, and a sassy zig zag black and white sleevless one.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I made this top one other time and didn't need the instructions for these. Once you make this you'll be able to throw it together in no time. The instructions are sparse but complete... this may be frustrating for very new seamstresses but not that huge a problem.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's oh so versatile. The drape lays nicely and isn't super low or right up to the neck.
Fabric Used: I used a modal rayon spandex knit for the two blue ones and a polyester crepe knit for the black and white zig zag one.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I changed up the sleeve length-- I simply left them out on the sleeveless one and folded over the seam allowance and sewed. I lopped of the sleeves for the pale blue one for short sleeves. I left the hems raw on the blue ones. I made my own fusible 'vilene' bias tape and added it to the shoulder seams to stabilize them.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've sewn this four times already... time to make more goodies. Yes, others should make this one. The magazine is dirt cheap (right now on 2/21/13 it's 3.95 USD plus 3.95 USD to ship) and has a bunch of great patterns.
Conclusion: Love this shirt! Go read and see more on my blog Kathy Sews.
