    I cut this pattern two sizes smaller than I normally would and found that it fit well. I could have gone down another size if I’d been using a stretchier knit and hadn’t made a couple of pin tucks. I also recommend that taller ladies add an extra few inches to the length. If I hadn’t done this it would have been too short on me.

      I cry when this happens to me, but as a beginner seamstress and a normal human, mistakes happen! sell the shirt to some who it will fit!

    This pattern is ridiculously oversized. I normally cut a size 32. I had to scale this pattern down and once I cut it out I had to take it in a ton! It’s poorly sized so expect to cut about 3 sizes smaller than you normally are.

    I was so excited about this basic pattern, and I’m sure it’s great – if a tent is your idea of a close fitted sweater. I am a european 34, cut the 32 (smallest) pattern pieces because I thought it looked big, but I still had to take out about 4 inches (by making pleats in the foldlines). And yes, I did check the test square. The only positive thing I can say about this pattern is that it’s only one wasted dollar. Sorry :(

    I agree with Hjh, and this pattern is extremely versatile! I’m definitely making an alteration on it sometime in the near future =]

    Oh yes, is that vest on the model ‘Franzi #9302’? It looks lovely too.

    Thanks for this pattern! It’s really ready for alterations. :-) Well, we have problems with sewing knits on our machine as well, even with a ballpoint needle, so I prefer sewing them by hand…

    Well, I have been scheming about purchasing a ballpoint needle for some time. That would most likely fix my problem. However…One thing you should know is that my machine is a 1963 White. It is a rather temperamental thing and requires many cleanings and manual tinkering. But I am very glad I have had it these seven years! I’ve sewn to the moon and back. :]

    Hi Tearsofpearls. Are you sure your machine does not take knits? Usually all home machines should be able to do it. All you need to do is make sure to switch the needle into a ballpoint needle, to avoid holes in the knit. Even though the instructions are asking for a twin needle, you can do it with a single one just as well. (thats what we did..)

    I love it! What a great, versatile pattern we can reuse and mixup again and again. You can make a thousand different shirts from this just by changing the sleeves and neckline!

    thank you so much for this basic pattern! i don’t know why, but it’s quite hard to find simple patterns like this one.
