|Pattern Description: |
Misses knit tops with neckline variations, pull on skirt and knit or woven scarf with fringe detail.
Misses 4-16, I cut a 12 at neck & shoulders, grading to a 16 at the waist (I didn't need to though)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were very clear and simple...but this is a simple top.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like the cowl. I am a sucker for a cowl. I like the pleat detail to create the cowl (it's a dainty cowl), and I like the neckline overall - not too low, not to high. It sits comfortably in back too.
I love that it's only 4 pattern pieces (front, back both cut on the fold, front facing cut on the fold, back facing).
I disliked the way the back facing was constructed...not sure why it wasn't just used as a binding
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I always have to cut a smaller neckline --or should I be cutting *that* size and doing an FBA? eh-- so I cut a 12 through the neck and shoulders, grading to a 14 at bust and a 16 at waist. I didn't need to do that though..I could have cut a 12 and graded to a 14 or 12 neck/14 bust/12 waist. I ended up taking 1 1/4" side seams.
No design changes.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew this again and definitely recommend it as a quick top that can be very versatile and a great wardrobe addition.
