NewLook 6922

 After I made my black trousers and spent so long working on the fit, I needed and something cute and quick to make to wear with them. So I'd been eye-balling this fabric at Jo-Ann's for the last several weeks. I mean I absolutely love it!!! I could just drape myself in it and roll around on the floor smiling contently---I'm sure you're getting my drift!  I finally gave in and bought 1.5 yards (since it was regularly price $14.99/yd and was only on sale for 30% off). When I ran across this New Look pattern, I instantly knew that the two would be perfect together. Sorry I meant to review this pattern on yesterday but my Camera Man (aka--my husband) came home too late for me to take an outside pic.
New Look 6922
Pattern Description:
Knit top with scooped gathered neckline and 3/4" sleeves.
Pattern Sizing:
I used the size 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, Yes, Yes!!!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
All too easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I'm a knit top (dress, and everything else) fanatic! I loved the scooped neckline and the gathers and the overall fit of the top.
Fabric Used:
Matte jersey in a really cool print!!!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Nope, well at least unintentionally. I wasn't paying attention when I went to sew the seam binding (self fabric) around the neckline and ended up sewing it 5/8" instead of the recommended 3/8". No big deal. That just meant I had to cut the 5/8" S.A. to 3/8" so I could fold my seam binding over and sew it. The next time I sew it, I will sew the neck binding by hand instead of doing so by machine to make sure it's perfect.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes, absolutely!!! Yeah, I'd love to have a bunch of these in my closet!!!
Great top, easy to sew, and absolutely no fuss. This tops definitely worth making and will make a great wardrobe staple:)

I also ran across a few other "wardrobe-building" New Look patterns that I feel I will get good use out of. I love these patterns for knits. They'll be great for me to work some of my knit stash down with:)
