|Pattern Description: Close-fitting, pullover top and tunic have double-layered, draped collar, side front/side back seams and stitched hems. C: narrow hem, back longer than front (wrong side shows). A, B, C, D: cup sizes. I made View C. (I have previously made View A with a collar band, and View A with an abbreviated cowl).|
Pattern Sizing: 6-22, cup sizes A-D. I cut 16 and D.
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? The neckline is a smidge cleavage-revealing.
Fabric Used: White knit; 95% rayon, 5% spandex, from JoAnn's. I never buy fabric for myself from JoAnn's. However, I waiting until the last minute to make this top and was balancing sewing time with music preparation and rehearsal time, and didn't leave time to order anything from any of my preferred online fabric stores. In retrospect, this fabric is too lightweight for this top. I would love the top in the 11 oz. rayon jersey with 4-way stretch that Linda Podietz sells at EmmaOneSock.com. But this will do, especially if I make a drapey vest that will hide the visible seam allowances at the bust.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Raised the center front neckline 1".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, yes, yes!
Conclusion: Vogue has hit the mark with their line of Custom Fit patterns. And this pattern hangs right in there with the rest. This will be a Tried 'N' True (TNT) pattern for me for years to come. Thanks, Vogue!
