|Pattern Description: "Close-fitting (translation: LOOSE-fitting) pullover tops have neck binding, seam detail, stitched hems, contrast variations, optional double needle topstitching and silk screen motifs." There are silk-screening instructions included, although I did not use them.|
I made View C
Pattern Sizing: 8-16, all in one envelope. The 8 is not a tiny size, so if you are tiny (and I think this top would look great on tiny!) you may need to downsize it a bit.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, although the shoulders & bust width at the underarms are quite wide (visible on the amazon envelope models, who are clearly quite thin as well as being super tall). I probably cut a smaller-than-size-8 at the shoulders, expanding to a 12 at the hips (please refer to my blog post for my new-found fitting method!)
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy - no problems at all.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the built-in creative options inherent in most of the Tilton Sisters' patterns - you can use as many or as few fabrics as you want, and once you have your fit perfected, it's a comfy casual dress up or down piece - lots of versatility here!
Fabric Used: Some rayon/lycra knits, and an organic cotton jersey (the black & blue stripe - from Stonemountain and Daughter)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I'm super thrilled about my pattern alterations, because I made a basic TNT t-shirt pattern, based on my experience with the Tilton Sisters Craftsy t-shirt pattern, and was able to confidently re-draft this pattern at the paper level and be confident that it would fit. The details are in my blog post
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will definitely sew this again. I'm getting more into dresses these days (I suspect that all the Pattern Reviewers and fellow bloggers influenced me hugely here lol!), and plan on making a longer, dress version, and also want to try View B. Definitely recommend this pattern!
Conclusion: Another winner in my book! Easy, breezy, but with enough creative twists to make it interesting beyond your basic T.
