|Pattern Description: This is a popular group of tops, on Best of 2012, for woven fabrics, with collar/sleeve variations. Bust and lengthwise darts. Side zip. I made view E for this. |
Pattern Sizing: 8-18. I made 16 with a FBA.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Good instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I'm always looking for patterns for wovens, since I seem to be attracted to these fabrics and have lots in my stash. The collar is cute and I like the little loop to thread it through.
Fabric Used: A cotton chambray in my stash forever. Very first fabric for my fabric stash June/July reduction project. This is wearable muslin for a silk garment from the the same pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did a 2 inch FBA, lowered the bust dart 1 inch and lengthened the torso 2 inches. The FBA was over-exuberant--I had a little too much room. I need to lower the front lengthwise dart.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, and I did make the silk version.
Conclusion: A nice fitted top for woven fabrics, sleeve and collar variations.
