Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Sure did.
Were the instructions easy to follow? EXTREMELY!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the style and the clever way McCalls created the pattern piece to help us create this beautiful top. No dislikes!
Fabric Used: I made two versions of this top, the first was made from a dark Taupe colored, sueded rayon knit I purchased from Michael Levine Fabric (this is one of my favorite online fabric stores). The second was made from a cream colored rayon/polyester knit I purchased from Hancock Fabric. This fabric has silver glitter on it which gives it a dressier look.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The only change I made was for modesty purposes, I raised the v-neck front 1-1/2". I would also suggest sewing some type of weight to the inside point of the drape to keep it from popping out when you wear it. Everything else fit like a charm!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would sew again, I've already made two right away and I want another in black too. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes the style!
Conclusion: This pattern made a really nice top for the winter, especially the one I made in the sueded knit fabric. I'm so very happy I saw it on Toy's blog! If you would like to see a photo of me wearing it, please stop by my blog.
