Loose fitting pullover tops have narrow hem. View C: Overlay Pattern Sizing:
XS-XXL. I made this in a size small for my daughter. It's roomy enough for her to put on and take off easily, but not overly baggy when worn. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I made view C, sleeveless top with overlay. Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but I did not like the use of bias binding for the neck and shoulders so I chose an alternate method. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The use of an overlay fabric for view C was what sold me on the pattern. Fabric Used:
Polyester lace for overlay contrast and some kind of lightweight synthetic blend for the main part. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not use self-bias binding for the neck and sleeve edges. Instead, I treated it somewhat like a vest and lining: 1) sewed the side seams, 2) put the overlay and main fabric bodies right sides together, then sewed the neckline and sleeve openings, 3) turned it inside out and understitched edges, 4) sewed up the shoulder seams. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
The result was a very feminine floaty top that will work well with all kinds of layers. I'm already thinking of other fabric combinations. Conclusion:
It was pretty quick to sew and my daughter loves it!
