Pattern Description: T-shirt fitted at the shoulders and flaring at the hips, with elbow patches. Short, long and 3/4 sleeves included in the pattern.
Pattern Sizing: 34-46. I used a straight size 40
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? Very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the pattern, love the neckline,not to high not to low, even if I was not sure how I will feel with this shape I made it and I find it really nice.
Fabric Used: The animal print top a very fine knit and the blue one a jersey with a nice structure.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The blue top is made without any alteration.
The animal print top : I have sewn the neckline with 1cm seam allowance ( SA is 1.5cm ), left the elbow patches out and I hemed the shirt with a serger rolled hem , I thought that this way the hem will drape better and I am pleased with the results.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely yes for both
Conclusion: A very easy to sew top that fits great and also an instant gratification.I love it.
