I couldn’t resist making this top! I fell in love with both the braid and the shape of the neckline…
It was very easy to make, the instructions and pattern are both very clear.
Since I’m a size 36 and the pattern made to suit 38/40 I took off 1,5 cm’s from all pattern-pieces (not the center front and center back since they were to be placed on a fold). The seams are 0,5cm wide, I’m not sure how much smaller that makes it (the pattern has 1,3cm seam allowance included), but it fits me!
I also shortened it a bit and added a waistband, since I’m not that comfortable with clothes that are wide around my middle…
I’m really happy with the outcome and recommend the pattern!
Very lightweight jersey.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
