Pattern Description:
Women's Knit Top
Pattern Sizing:

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that it was a quick make and easy for a beginner to sew.
Fabric Used:
Cotton Jersey Knit, Rib Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
View B has pleats in the sleeve top instead of gathering.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I would sew it again. It's a versatile pattern.
Conclusion:

I made View B in a rib knit and View D in a sweater knit. I lengthened the sleeve in View D to wrist length and lengthened the pattern a few inches to wear with my skinny jeans. Somehow I ended up with the collar buttoning on the right, but I'm o.k. with that.I am tall (5'11") but I didn't have to lengthen the pattern when I sewed View B.

I really like your gray version of view D. It's nice to know it is an easy pattern. I plan to give it a try hoping for a quick, easy satisfying project. I need a success!

These two tops turned out well. Thanks for mentioning your height in relation to the lengths of the tops. I am tall and struggle with short sweaters and blouses. Kathy
