Urban College Girl - Last Knit Top M4303
I made view C previously with modifications to the sleeve. This is the fifth and final knit top for DD's UCG collection. I've completed most of it with only a vest and pair of slacks to go. This review is of view A.
Misses/Miss Petite Tops for stretch knits only. Tops have neckline variations, back zipper closure, topstitching and sleeve variations. Top A and B have sleeves with slanted hems. Top B has lace edging. Top C and D have two piece sleeves and purchased trim. Top C has contrast lower sleeves.
X-Small to X-Large. I made a small.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much. I omitted the zipper and front and back neck facings. Instead I used the binding method described in Kwik Sew's Beautiful Lingerie, pages 26 and 27.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. They were easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? My DD likes tops with bell sleeves. No dislikes.
Fabric Used: Knit fabric from Vogue Fabrics
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Only if DD wants another top out of this pattern.
Conclusion Easy top to make.
