Pattern Description: Misses & Plus Size pullover knit top in two lengths with sleeve variations.

Pattern Sizing: Misses & Plus sizes XXS to XXL.

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? Did not like the instructions for applying neckband. Did not use interfacing as this is a knit top. The next time I will look for another method for finishing the neckline.

Fabric Used: ITY Knit from Fabric Mart

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:Made view A and then decided to add the band at the hem for view C. The blouse turned out much longer than I would have liked. The next time I make this pattern I will remove approximately 4 inches from the hemline prior to applying the band at the hem.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes with the above changes.

Conclusion: This will be a wardrobe staple for me. I like three-quarter length sleeves and the fact that it is not a set in sleeve so no worries about fitting my full arms. I can wear this blouse style year round.
