Vogue 2980 Sandra Betzina top
This is just a great top. So easy to sew but with tons of style. And comfortable too. You just have to find a bra that has wide set straps and you are all set.
One thing I really like about this garment is that, because the neckline is folded, you don't have to worry about achieving a professional finish around the oh so visible neckline. Often that is where the stitching shows the "loving hands at home" look. So this is an excellent pattern for knit beginners.
The only alteration I did was to add on to the side seams to increase size C up to my bust size.
My knit is a bit thick so there is a bit of bulk at the underarm side seams where the collar is pleated in. Not uncomfortable but a little odd feeling at first.
Do you like my rooster?
