Pattern Description: Misses pull over top for knits, neck band, front/back extending into right sleeve forming drape, shaped hemline and narrow hem. View A is sleeveless; View B with long sleeve; View C long sleeve with contrasting sleeve

Pattern Sizing: Size XSM through Medium

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? Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love that there are only four pieces; no zippers or buttons
Fabric Used: A very soft, drapey jersey knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I'm glad I did a muslin because the pattern only went up to a medium and it was pretty snug around the hips so I ended up cutting it 1-1/2 inches wider on both the front and back piece. I needed an XSM for the shoulders.

I also had to shorten the sleeves alot...at least 3 inches.

It called to do a 5/8 inch turn down hem but I used my coverstitch and turned up 1-1/2 inches as the top is plenty long. I also coverstitched the neck band and sleeves.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes

Conclusion: I love the unique look of this top and it is so comfortable and quick and easy to make.

Oh, I had this in my hand to make the other day. Thanks for reviewing it. Is there any issue with showing too much when you lift your arm up on the drapey-sleeve side?
