It Could Have been a Contender.....

This top taught me to never rush a project for you are garuanteed to mess it up,LOL! Pattern Description: Misses Knit Tops. I made view E.

Pattern Sizing:4-16. I sewed a 16.

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?Yes!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like this top very much I had already sewn view D.

Fabric Used: A heather grey cotton rib knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:My usual swayback and lower the waist at the front. I was trying to get this finished before heading to Chicago that I forgot to stablize the neckline and shoulders. I didn't realize it not until I try it on and there was a gap at the neck in back. I tried to fix the problem by resewing the center back seam eliminating 1 inch and that is when I realized that I did not stablize the neck line. OOPS!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will not sew this again. I have already made two tops from this pattern and I have many more that I want to sew.

Conclusion: Great easy top. Just remember to stablize the neck line.

Cute top and looking to try my hand at a top with a twist or tab. When I end up with a stretchy neckline, I add darts to each side of the shoulder and it helps.

Love the new blog design.
