Pattern Description: Knit top with gathered bust and 3/4 sleeves.
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. I'm always surprised when I don't have to read the Burda instructions ten times to understand what they are trying to explain.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the neckline. No dislikes.
Fabric Used: Cotton-lycra jersey from my stash
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 1" to the length of the top. I also shortened the neck binding by 3/4" for a snugger fit. I added bra stays so I can wear a "regular" bra with this.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably will not sew this again as it is pretty distinctive. I would recommend this pattern to others.
Conclusion: I love stripes! I was looking for something a little different to use up this fabric. This top turned out even better than I pictured. While taking pictures my husband said I looked like a mime. He took a mime class as an elective in college. He was the only engineering student in the class. He wanted to take a picture of me doing mime stuff so he coached me on how to "walk"". I failed the class but we had fun with it. Can't imagine what the neighbors were thinking.
