Misses / Women's Knit Top
10-18. I cut a pattern size 14 and I am currently fitting into a size 8/10 in RTW.
I made View A & yes it looked exactly like the photo on the pattern.
The instructions are pretty easy to follow.
I am still not sure about the front of the straps. The instructions said to hand stitch to the inside of the bodice facing, but I didn't like the way they looked finished. But I may have to put in a few more slip stitches from the inside of the bodice.
I used a jersey/spandex fabric in a black & white stripe.
Fun, Fast, & Flattering on any figure. And the possibilities in fabric colors & pattern are endless. I love that it looks very retro too. Definitely a keeper!
