Pattern Description: Close-fitting and flared, pullover tunic has front variations, shaped hemline, and narrow hem. Wrong side shows on back hemline. C, D views both have a cowl collar.

Pattern Sizing: Sizes XS-XXL
I made a combination of XS and S

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it did!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Great instructions!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love how quickly this patterns sews up. The top is so comfortable and stylish. I also like ALL the views in the pattern envelope and hope to eventually make one of each, just need to clone myself to make a little more time! LOL!

Fabric Used: I used a dark grey, light-weight, cotton/poly knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made a XS size through shoulders. I usually make a larger size though the hips than I do for the waist, but there is enough ease that I made a size S for the bust, waist and hips. For a comparison, in most patterns I make an 8 through the shoulders, 10 for the bust, and a 12 for the hips.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I love this pattern and hope to revisit it soon!

Conclusion: If you are looking for a quick to sew, stylish top, sew this one! It's super comfortable, and in a couple of hours you can be wearing a new top!

Beautifully made top, Christa. The best part is how elegant this can look with a variety of pants/jeans/ and skirts. Beautiful color , fabric and pic.

I LOVE this top, Christa. It's not often I like the BACK of a garment more than the front, but this one almost pushes me over the edge -- ha! Every little detail is just perfect, and the fabric was a perfect match with this pattern. :o)

Now that is just plain cute!!! Nicely styled. Best rendition I've seen yet! You've inspired me to get this pattern out today and get started!

Fabulous looking. I have this pattern in my wish list and am unsure because it looks like a lot of fabric in the back. I am thinking it needs a VERY slim back side to look good. Yours looks so good though, I am tempted to try it. Very stylish and your fabric choice is perfect.
