I am much happier with this fabric as a top and wore it at least and a month while subbing.
Misses top pattern with 6 top variations. I made View A.
8-18 in one envelope. I started with the 18.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I don’t remember having any trouble with the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that the top takes so little fabric. I also like tht the post resembles Boden’s RaveIlo top. I dislike how BIG the top was as originally sewn.
I disassembled a Kohl’s dress and used the fabric for this top.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
Based on other people’s helpful reviews, I raised the neckline 3 inches.
This was also the first pattern I
did a slash-and-spread FBA. What a time-consuming process! I like pivot-and-slide much better. I moved half the FBA into the neckline gathers.
After sewing, I had to take in the side seams up to 4 inches on each side so the top doesn’t look like a sack on me.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
After all the pattern tweaking, I would sew this top again for sure. With modifications, I would recommend this pattern to others.
