This was my first attempt at a knit garment. Pattern Description:
Pullover top with twisted front detail, back darts, extended shoulders, V-neckline front and back Pattern Sizing:
8 - 22. I did 18. 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?
Yes What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought the pattern would be easy as it was only 2 pieces - well it was. However, there weren't enough options to increase length and my sizing has not worked out well. There was only one lengthening line - below waist but I needed to lengthen above waist and as it turns out I needed more length between shoulder and bust as bust seams which should lie under bust are too high and lie across bust.
I think I should have made a smaller size as seems rather droopy around neckline Fabric Used:
I would have been better using a finer fabric as it would have threaded through better and would probably have draped better and altogether looked nicer. I bought this fabric cheaply to practice knit sewing. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lengthened above waist to drop waist for my long waist and lengthened below waist as I thought top looked a bit short on pattern photo. I need further alterations but am not sure how to do them Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again with a finer fabric but only if I can work out how to alter to fit better. The top is not finished in photo. Partly because it doesn't fit - but also because some reviews recommend a different way of finishing neckline and arms rather than narrow hem
I would recommend to others who do not have so many fit issues as I have. Indeed there are many positive reviews on this top. Conclusion:
I have learned quite a bit making this top so even though it doesn't fit, I can't be too disappointed.
