This pattern is definitely one of my favorites.. The pattern instructions are so simple and easy to follow.. not too many pieces to fuss about...very little alterations needed and the fit is just fabulous, its roomy and comfortable and the gathering at the waist band gives it a perfect fit.
Fabric: Poly lycra knit
Pattern description: V-neck, bat sleeves, gathering at the waist band.
Alterations: I omitted the elastic in the seams on the sleeve edges. Per the instructions the sleeves should be sewn together then the elastic attached to the seams on the inside of the sleeve closer to the edge which give the edges a gathered effect. Trying to put the elastic in just didnt work for me so I just left it alone.
The neck band was shortened by 3 inches because aftering pinning it to the neck of the garment I thought it was a little too big and I wanted the neck to fit a little closer. So as I sewed on the neck bank I was able to give it a good stretch. After putting on the neck band. It still seemed a little loose in the neck line area by the shoulders. I am thinking that it could be because of the fabric. The fabric is very drapey so it has a hanging feeling....Other than that I love this top....
