|Pattern Description: |
Pull-over tops are close fitting. View A has full length sleeves and V-neckline with lapped collar that is gathered at front neckline with four decorative buttons and loops. View B has short sleeves and wide round faced neckline with gathered neckband.
Sizes XS, S, M, L, and XL
I made a size M.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, minus the loops!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
As usual, KwikSew had very easy to follow instructions in a good sized font. The illustrations are also quick and easy to view.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Liked the look of the feature neckline, and the higher back neck. Disliked the amount of fabric in the front when the loops are added.
A very soft and slinky 95%polyester / 5% elastane knit. Aptly named Paint Splat Khaki!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
After sewing the neckline I removed the loops! Just way too much fabric going on for me in such a small area.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I would/am going to sew it again, sans the loops and would recommend that others think carefully about their fabric choice when adding in the loop feature.
A great top, very quick to whip up and looks great under a jacket. The neckline actually looks like a scarf tucked under a jacket which is quite stylish in itself. If you just need a new quick work top this would be perfect as the neckline gives you a little bit of added interest. More info and pictures at my blog...
