Yes, tis true, the weather is getting cooler here. That said, this top was made a while back and is just now percolating to the top of the blog.
This is my fitting muslin, if you will, made from some lovely brushed poly knit. Let me tell you, this fabric feels soooo wonderful – both to the hand and to the bod.
About the pattern: overall, I like it, though on me it does run big. And as a friend said to me “A t-shirt with darts? You have darts?” Yes, there are small fitting darts.
The yellow side part does not have a seam, so it joins front to back. Not the best way to fit things, hence there’s a seam straight down the middle of both the front and back to make the top wearable. I took in an inch with each one.
Rather than try a baby hem on the sleeves, I doubled them up with the yellow, so they are heavier, and the yellow pokes out the bottom.
Future changes? I may take some width out of the sides as well, and work on the dart placement. It’s not quite right, though with a knit the pointies are not obvious. Or maybe remove it all together, as I am not so well endowed as to need darts.
While the top is currently out of rotation (see comment on weather above) it will get a lot of use next year.
