|Pattern Description: Pullover top has neckline and pocket variations, seam detail, and shaped hemine. A: slightly draped neck and pocket bands.|
Pattern Sizing: XSmall to XXLarge. I cut a Medium. Because this was for a long, lean woman who plans to wear it with leggings, I cut the body 2" longer.
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? I only used the instructions for the neckband and pocket bands.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love the design. Think the offset neckbands and pocket bindings are wonderful.
I don't like the bottom of the pocket. Whether this happens because of the weight of the pocket or is by design, I wasn't crazy about it. When double-stitching the hem, the stitching continues across the bottom of the pockets, but then the fabric above the stitching hangs down over the stitching. I don't know the solution. Maybe stop the double-stitching at the pocket seams? This one is going to require some thinking.
Fabric Used: Polyester microfiber from Marcy Tilton. Wonderful fabric!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added two inches to the front and back. However—oops!—I neglected to add that same two inches to the godet. I stitched the godet in from the bottom up, stopping at the large circle. I stitched the side seam from just below the armscye to the sleeve hem. Then I drew a line from the side seam at the armscye down to the large circle and stitched that. I lost about 3" in circumference just above the large circle, but it fits fine, and that's all that matters!
Next time I'll remember to add the 2" to the godet!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is my second one. This version is for a friend. I'll be making another View A for me!
Conclusion: Lovely, chic and yet comfortable. Another Tilton success.
