Pattern Description: Misses/Men's Tops & Jacket: Close-fitting, pullover top with princess seams and narrow hem. Optional hooded jacket.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is a unisex pattern, therefore I expected it to be a bit boxy even though the description said that it was "close-fitting". Well, I can't imagine either a male or female being able to wear this without major alterations, although I did not have a male available to check the fit on. The princess seams fall far to the sides, so do not flatter a female figure.
Fabric Used: a Cotton-Poly knit from my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't keep track of all the alterations that I made, but I took 2 1/2" from the underarm and tapered in the sides to get a better fit. Also took 2" off the hem and arms. If I were to make this again, I would take in the bulk from the princess seams, not just the side seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No and No.
Conclusion: I am writing this review only because no one has reviewed this pattern. The "hoodie" might work, but the shirt does not.
