Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, pullover tops with draped front and back collar

Pattern Sizing: Xsm - med

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 and fun. At some point when I had to make the collar it was such an unusual way, and then it all turned out to be just right! Loved it!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Very unique looking top. No dislikes.

Fabric Used: Jersey. Drapes beautifully. Bought it for this project.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made longer sleeves. Sewed the center front 2 inches higher.
Also I took some in on the side seams by the waist. It was too big on the back, wasn't flattering at all.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? It's pretty unique, so probably will not sew it for some time. Maybe the short version for the spring.
Yes, I recommend it!

Conclusion: Loved making it up, great instructions, nice result!

I just finished this top yesterday. I too raised the center front 2 inches, but neglected to lengthen sleeve length. Your top looks better then the pattern picture. I love the way you made your shoulder pleats a little further down in the chest area. Great job.

Your drape is perfect. Better on you than the model. Perfect color.
