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.
