|Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, pullover tops A, B have topstitching details. A: top applied neck trim and pleated sleeves (raw edges visible at top of sleeve and neck edge, wrong side of fabric will show at neck edge), double needle topstitched seams and hems, optional silk screened motifs. B: forward shoulder, top mostly cut on crosswise grain, bound neck edge, long sleeves, stitched hems. Package includes Katherine Tilton's instructions for silk-screening. |
Pattern Sizing: This is a bit more loose fitting then a standard tee. Misses XS-XXL. I made a S/M (which means I cut between the two sizes), and generally am a 12 in Vogue.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, my fabric is almost identical.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, a very easy pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the side insert panels.
Fabric Used: You will see that I went on a striped fabric buying binge (I am now tired of stripes). I gathered up the 7 different striped fabrics I purchased with several patterns from my stash. This fabric and pattern matched up well.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No changes except putting the neck binding on the bias so that I got the more striped effect on the binding too.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would not make this again in the stripe because one is enough. I do like the pleated sleeves on the other version, so I may try that one in the near future.
Conclusion: Looking at this striped top on my dress form reminds me of Robin Thick and the Miley Cyrus twerking "incident" which I'm so tired of hearing about. I need to get past that thought before I wear this.
