Pattern Description:
My summary: a knit shirt with waterfall neckline, generous cut and small pleats at the shoulder. The top tapers in at the elasticated waist.
Pattern Sizing:
36 - 44
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?
Didn't use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a very elegant pattern with lovely draping at the neckline. The elasticated waist and full sleeves mean that it needs minimal fitting.
Fabric Used:
Silky rayon jersey knit in camel.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Possibly; this is a Christmas present for one of my sisters in law. If she likes it enough, she may get another for her birthday!
Conclusion:
A simple and easy to sew top that is nice enough to be a respectable Christmas present.
