|This is a popular pattern, reviewed here many times. It is a close fitting top with narrow raglan sleeves with darted shoulders. It has a semi-squared off boat neckline with side shaping and 3 sleeve options, long, cap and 3/4 length. I made the long sleeve out of wool jersey.|
I decided to cut at the medium size to avoid adding my usual full bust alteration. I figured in this case it would be easy enough to take in the neckline if it was too big. This worked out well as I was able to quickly cut and sew without distorting the side seams of the pattern. I didn't take in the neckline but next time I think I will as it is a tiny bit big and slides around under a jacket. I deepened the seam in the sleeve and underarm so I guess I really am the small size except for the bustline.
The pattern envelope suggests that this can be made in 45 minutes. Well, I'm just not that quick but even so, it goes together rapidly and the instructions are excellent.
