This top is from Simplicity's "Built By You" line of patterns. Most of them are really over the top trendy (in my opinion), but I thought this one was kind of fun. A little on the bold side for me, but it's fun to be trendy sometimes. =)
I like the pattern...it went together easily and quickly. I made the size 6 and thought it was a good fit. The underarm seam sits high and close, but not so much that I can't wear it. I just have to be careful not to rip the seams when I pull it over my head (it's a pullover style).
I did make a few changes...The neckline is very low...I raised it 3 inches just for some modesty, and I think it still looks good without being so revealing.
The sleeve hems are finished with elastic. Yuck! I just gathered the bottom edge and sewed in to a 3/4" wide band instead. I like the band a lot better then the recommended elastic.
Total cost: $3
$1 for the pattern and $2 for cheap Walmart fabric. Thread, buttons, and elastic came from my stash.
