Two tops today! Simp 1463 and Vogue 8636
Two knit tops got finished this week and I've learned a lot now that they are done. That ease thing is tricky. In both of these tops I "petited" the pattern, reducing length between the apex and shoulder. Now that I see the photos I am thinking not necessary. When I make these next, I will not "petite". It appears to give me negative ease around the upper bodice and wearing ease going down. I think it should be one or the other and since I am not a big fan of negative ease for myself I will make the pattern with no adjustments. I did not do a full bust adjustment on either of these. Next time I will do a small one so that things will fall a little better. Other than that I really like these tops, find them comforable, and consider them definitely wearable and at the beginning of my knit learning curve. Any comments are appreciated. I will do two separate posts about the pattern construction.
I like the look of this draped back which you can only find in the tech drawings on the pattern. There was an issue and that will come with the review. This was view B.
This is the Marcy Tilton tee shirt pattern. I really like it but it also did not need to be "petited" in hindsight. The fabric shows everything and you can see how my bra straps cut in and I don't like that.
All of this is livable but I can do better and hopefully will. But for now I am moving on to some linen pieces. It's muslin time!...Bunny
