I really like this pattern and do plan to sew more of it. I had to make several fitting changes as I normally do which included a FBA, a FSA, sway back adjustment and a back length adjustment.
With the FBA I did not want to keep the created dart from the adjustment and removed that dart using a tutorial from Debbie Cook at "STITCHES & SEAMS". (It may not be there now, but I burned that technique into my brain to use; it really works.)
Here are a few photos of the top on a hanger as well as me wearing:
|Forward side seam|
|Sleeves with contrasting band|
This is a warm top as the fabric is fairly heavy and given that we had a couple inches of snow today I stayed fairly comfortable while outside wearing this under my pea coat.
With this top finished I started the McCall's knit top. That top is almost complete and another post to follow to give you more detail.
