Pattern Description: Sleeveless blouse with gathered neckline and a bias cut tie neck. The scarf isn't tied in reality: it passes through a loop and this feature creates a very elegant neckline!
Pattern Sizing: 34-42. I made my usual 36
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I like very much the pattern as it is! But I wanted to make this particular top a little different, so I didn't add the scarf. Instead I added lace, so my project has only a small similarity to the original.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The sewing on this is very simple and I didn't put the tie so I made it my own way.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This pattern is pure elegance! It's a very easy but effective. I love the scarf neck and the gathers at the neckline allthough I skipped them both
Fabric Used: Jersey lycra
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
As you can see I didn't put the scarf. I added lace which I pleated. I also made pleats at the neckline instead of gathers. I finished the armholes with a doubled band. You can see a better picture of the lace at the collar here
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Sure I will use again and I highly recommend it to others.
Conclusion: I love this very quick project and what's better and more versatile than a black jersey top? It is very comfy and easy to dress up or down.
Thanks for looking!!!
