"No wardrobe can do without a simple top like this. Wear it as a summer tank top by itself or under sheer blouses, wear it to the gym or to bed - the choice is yours!
A super quick project: from a cutting table to your wardrobe drawer in a flash. No complex fittings or adjustments ” an instant gratification!"
6-16, Bust 32.25 - 42.25
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
yes, from the front
Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes, very clear
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Great style and instructions, cut well for good bra/strap coverage., best was method for making/attaching straps.
I found there was significant back wrinkling not just on me, but also when this was shown on other peeps (not when pictured on dressforms). I think if you are small B cup, you will be OK, but otherwise may need to adjust the bust if the back wrinkling bothers you.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
My fabric had 60-70% stretch - pattern called for 70-80%. On my second muslin, I added 1/2" length across the center bust area, and a similar wedge at the hem. I still needed to take in a wedge in the back as well as shortening the straps. I used the same fabric for the 2nd muslin. I think with just removing a little from the CB, I will get rid of the rest of the wrinkles. I'm also going to try this with a stretchier fabric. I've been hunting on the web for FBA in stretchy fabric, and for a cami - if you know a good way to do this, please post a link!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes, and yes - it's a free pattern, what do you have to lose! Seriously, great tips on the bands.
I'm giving this a recommend with modification because of the back wrinkling but I really do like this pattern, and would also rate it as a great wardrobe builder.
