I have made this pattern with long sleeves before and really liked it. I think this pattern runs a bit small side. I made an XL. This plum fabric is a cotton jersey, so its stretchier than some other knits, plus it seems to grow as you wear it. A regular large may have been okay in this fabric. Its got a bit too much hip room and the neck doesn't lie flat in back, so I shaved a bit off the hips and the shoulder seams for the next go. It is a lovely color and goes well with these pants.
think it fits much better.
(Just so you know, I do not save fabric scraps, except for knits. I have a crazy notion to make panties with them--once I'm through menopause!)
The third one is my favorite so far. Its also an ITY, but a nicer quality than the previous fabric. This fabric was perfect, especially because it came from the free table! (The early bird gets the worm, Cynthia)
I wouldn't be wrong gushing too much about this pattern. It's really quick to make and takes less than a yard of fabric. First you sew a dart at the top of the sleeve, then you sew the shoulder and side seams. The neckline and sleeves are simply turned to the inside and stitched. Hem it and you're done. I have to say, I felt a bit guilty when I first bought my cover stitch machine, but it sure does make a top like this super easy and professional looking. You only need to use Steam-a-Seam if you like burning your fingers.
I do still have two more excellent fabric candidates in my hoard for this pattern, so you will be seeing at least two more.
