During autumn I notied that I had a lot of short sleeved tops. A good number of seaters, but not much of those in between tops. So I had work to do. Helped by an overflowing fabric cupboard I got to work and decided on tow fun and bright tops. They worked so well and I am very very proud of the end result
Pattern Description:Long sleeved tops that make me happy
Pattern Sizing: 38 for the most of it (36 shoulders, tapering to 42 on hips)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes to both, though the fabrics are so different to the one on Burdastyle that unless you know it is not that easy to see. I think my choices are more fun
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes they were, but the patterns are easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I just love slightly different necklines as it pulls attention toward my face. Both of these have that. Specifically B was a case of opening the issue and saying I want that one
Fabric Used: Both are made of tricot
A it a thin gray and blue striped pattern. The different blues in the fabric make me think of the ocean without being too obvious.
B A very happy cheerful apple blossom pattern. Just looking at that fabric just makes you feel as if spring is there. When I was finished I noticed that the pinks circle from the right hand bottom to the left hand top. Unintentional but a nice bonus!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
On B it asks for a complete match in the neckline. I overlapped a little there as I think it looked a little neater. Other than that no changes
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes to both. They are happy staple patterns that also would work well in solid colours
Conclusion:Love these tops
