|Pattern Description: |
Misses’ pullover tops have round necklines with or without collar, back button and loop closure and can be made sleeveless or with long, short or flutter sleeves. A, C elastic waist forming a blouson; E, F have an easy swing shape.
I cut an 8 and then took it up at the hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I did View E
Yes, but with less roominess.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the peter pan collar and the high/low hemline, though I altered it.
I like the simplicity of the design and that there are no zippers or buttonholes involved, it was a quick project.
Cotton Swiss Dot with a circle pattern from Joann.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut a size 8 even though the pattern told me to cut a 12. I went by finished garment measurements and the amount of ease that I prefer. Then I took 6 inches off at the hips and slightly shortened the back hemline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I will definitely make this again and will try the other versions as well.
Easy breezy Summer top, I love the finished garment! I like the fit that I achieved and would make the same alterations again.
