Half Wrap Top
I don’t think I’ll be leaving the apartment much today see as how it’s still snowing. I might take off the belt for ultimate comfort 😉
And I finished a new top last night as I continue to tests out knit top patterns. I’m not convinced I like this one a lot yet.
Pattern: Simplicity 2369
Fabric: Polyester lacy knit, I say it’s lacy because it’s got holes in it like lace does, but all of the flowers are solid.
Pattern Description: Misses’ knit dress in two lengths or tunic and pants sewing pattern.
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? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It’s a pretty knit top and it’s comfortable. I’m not sure I like how wide the sleeves are because that might end up bothering me, and I feel like the neckline should be lower but that might be because the fabric I used is more stable than a soft jersey. It looks like the neckline is lower on the model photos too. Not that anyone would know this while I’m wearing the top, but it’s almost like a maternity/nursing top because if the wrap over piece wasn’t there, the shirt would only cover one side of my chest:
Pattern Sizing: 8-24, I cut a 10
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Maybe, but not anytime soon
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, It’s a pretty easy top and would look good on a lot of body types.
Conclusion: It’s an ok top and I will wear it but I’m not head over heels about it.
