Pattern Description: Close-fitting, pullover tops have neckline variations, below elbow or long sleeves and narrow hems.

Pattern Sizing: 6-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Mostly. The cowl was less pronounced than it appears on the envelope.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't use the instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that the neckline and curved waist make this more flattering than the average knit tee.

Fabric Used: Very thin polyester knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I thought the idea of a facing on a knit tee was silly, so I eliminated that. I finished the back neck with self fabric bias tape. For the front, I cut an additional front piece and used it as a lining.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, with the same modifications.
