I first played around with this pattern HERE. I didn't have much success with it due to a bad fabric choice and the fact that I refused to take it apart and make the necessary adjustments. Well I decided to give another view a shot but with a few modifications and that's how I ended up with my top! I absolutely love it! It's one of those tops that I could have 10 of, but I'll try not to go overboard with it.
Close fitting top with shoulder elastic casing
I cut the size 10
(Here's a better view of the color)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but I made a few modifications which I'll describe below.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the overall design!
A lycra knit in a mustard color. The pictures don't do it justice. It's such a great color. Also, the lycra is great because it provides control to such a fitted top.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
2. Lengthened the pattern 2"
3. I ended taking out about an inch or 2 out of the shoulder strap so it wouldn't be loose.
4. I also tacked the shoulder strap to the back bodice piece.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yeah! I have some royal blue lycra waiting to be transformed into another top.
I love, love, love, love, love this top a thousand time over! It is so my style!
