Pattern Description: MISSES' TOP: Slightly fitted through bust, stitched hems. A,B: self faced collar. C: loose fitting, shaped front panel with pocket, raw edge finish. D: draped front neckline, shaped hem.

I've been working on this sweater of an on for a minute but I had to set it aside to get the Christmas gifts and Christmas PJ's done. I finally finshed today so I can rethread my machines and move on to sewing my cute little jacket.


Back View

Pattern Sizing: Y(XSmall-Small-Medium), ZZ(Large-XLarge-XXLarge)

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? Definitely

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I would say that this pattern runs slightly big. I am actually pretty happy about it because I was able to sew it right out of the envelope but if you have a normal sized bust, you might want to adjust in the bust area.

Fabric Used: A metallic sweater knit that was a BEAST on my sewing machine.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: N/a

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have an idea for another of the views on the pattern.

Conclusion: Super easy, great options


  1. That's a pretty top. So sparkley for tonight, or any night for that matter. Or any day. Whenever you want to shine!

  2. Oh, I love it. I may have to go buy the pattern. am I inferring correctly that I would NOT have to do an FBA as usual with this pattern?

  3. Nice sweater! I LOVE your fabric choice!!!

  4. Looks great on you. Lovely fabric.

  5. This is cute. I see its a Misses and I'm a 28. Any thoughts on how to adjust for me?
