Longsleeve with kimono sleeves.
36-44, I made my usual 36.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Somehow, I did not get the stripes to match up at the sleeves. Otherwise it looked like at the photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I did not read them, the top is very easy to sew.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how easy it is and that the kimono sleeves are slim. The pattern uses quite a lot of fabric with 1.5 m and I don't like the weird length of the sleeves.
Striped viscose jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lengthened the sleeves by 2 cm but they are still too short for my taste. Another 2 cm would have been good but I did not have enough seam allowance. I shortened the bodice by 8 cm since it is very long.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely sew it again but would not hazzle with stripes again. Next time in a solid or patterned jersey. And of course with longer sleeves.
Quick and easy kimono sleeved top that is a great basic for any wardrobe!
