ITY knitPattern alterations or any design changes you made
None, which is VERY unusual for me!Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I plan to make the cowl draped neck view.
Yes I recommend this pattern.Conclusion:
Some of the pieces in this top have a strange shape, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the top takes shape quickly. I love the style, it is very slimming.
I used a very large print, leftover from another project. I did not have enough material to match the print at the back seam. That’s ok, because I didn’t have enough material to eliminate the seam and cut it on the fold, either.
The only modification I would make is to lengthen the middle pieces that form a twist at the center, front. The top hangs on my tiny half mannequin, but I fill it out nicely. It took several tries to get those twist pieces positioned just right so it looked good on me. I think an extra half inch or so at the ends would make the tweaking easier.
