Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the style of this top and think it makes a great shell to add to my growing wardrobe of cardigans. No dislikes.
Some poly knit from the remnant bin...about $1.50 for the yard of fabric. The pattern says it's for stretch wovens as well.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't do the side slits because I decided to assemble on the serger. That went really well. I did sew the front ruffle on with the sm. I forgot to do this before joining the shoulder seams though so I had to improvise, luckily it's black!
(I needed a swayback alteration and to alter the dart position next time)
I cut a size 12 until the bust then I graded to a 14 from there.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. It is a nice, basic top with a little flair with the ruffle.
Really like this and will be wearing it to work tomorrow. It's a great wardrobe builder!
