My pattern is a medium and I don't like thinner knits to be too fitted so I added a 1/2 inch to the side seams. Because of my age and or size, I lengthened the front bodice by one inch. While wearing this the weight of the knit pulls the top a bit lower than I like for work so I'll just wear a cami under it. I did not have this problem with the lighter weight knit. For the next version I will probably raise the neck line a bit so I won't have to worry about it.
I used a twin needle for the sleeves and hem. I have a serger with the coverstitch function but I haven't used it yet and didn't want to start arguing with my machine, I wanted to wear my shirt the next day.
I would love to go again. (Billi can you hear me?)
The sleeves are really the same length and the cowl usually sits nicer but I just finished working 10 hours and was too tired and hungry to spend any time making adjustments for the camera.
This is a really quick top to make and you can easily cut and sew it in an afternoon.
