I got sidetracked, and finished the cowl neck and foldover version of the Hotpatterns 3 graces top which I started on Sunday. I traced a size 10 as I thought the pattern would run large. No such luck, I should have gone by my bust measurement on the envelope and used a size 12. The pictures of the (unhemmed) top are of my daughter (though she is a size 8). She likes the tops as well, doesn't mind them to be a bit loose fitting so they will be worn.
Full review is here on Pattern Review. I like these tops very much, and will certainly make them for myself too. They are not very time consuming, just a few hours for both tops.
I thought the cap of the sleeve a bit high with a bit too much ease for a knit top. Here a comparison with a Jalie sleeve (2449).
And something I don’t understand in the pattern. It’s the shoulder seam. the paper pattern parts are pinned together, notches matched and then this strange line came about. I haven’t seen this mentioned in reviews, so probably I’m missing something. Just don’t know what. Instructions are not helpful here either.
As I concluded my review on PR: though I had some minor issues with this pattern, I certainly like it and will make it again in a size that suits me better.
