Pattern Description: Misses tunic length top

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Mostly - I combined the 2 views

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes

Fabric Used: An acrylic sweater knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I don't care for set-in sleeves in a sweater, so I used the dolman sleeve with the cowl neck top.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I have sewn it before with the regular neck but found the neck much too large. My bra straps were always showing and I just felt too bare. None of my necklaces looked right with it. So this time I did the cowl neck and I like it. I might make it a again in a denser knit.

Conclusion: The fabric was quite difficult to work with (a very fine knit; it frayed apart if I breathed on it) and I'm not crazy about how see through it is. I might wear a thin, dark grey tank under it.

I like the look of this cowl neck top. I have had this pattern for some time and never made it as I thought it would be way too wide at neckline. This version seems to fit you well!
