2804-Empire Crossover Top Pattern Description
It's a crossover top (surplice) with three sleeve lengths, optional modesty panel and ruching. Which view and size did you make?
I made the sleeveless view with side ruching Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes If not, why?
- Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes If not, why?
- What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the style and how you can get three different sleeve lengths out of one pattern. Fabric used
Rib knit first and then cotton/lycra second Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I added binding to the top of the modesty panel to make it a little taller and the top bodice pieces I will make a little longer so that the seam won't be in the middle of my bust instead of below it Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
This works GREAT with the cotton/lycra stretchy and a perfect fit!
