    Great Pattern; Fabulous Download

    Posted by Nothy Lane on 2nd Mar 2020

    This is the first pattern I purchased as a download by Hot Patterns. ANd I am thrilled. I resisted downloads because I own some that are in excess of 90 pages and I just don't want to tape and cut 90 pages. Copy shop printouts are generally out for me because of where I live. So I resisted. I wish I hadn't, this is a very small print out, and the taping together made it easy. What a dream to work with...I think I will be buying all future patterns as downloads. I made this top with some wonderful heavy fleece that I found at a thrift shop. And the quality of that fabric made all the difference here. The raglin sleeves are very flattering, the neckline is rounded and makes a perfect classic sweatshirt. What drew me to this pattern was the hem. On my middle aged figure I didn;t want a ribbed hem that would make me look even more like an apple. This elongated and open hem was a dream to sew (it made finishing this simple pattern even faster) and is quite flattering because it smooths out an area that I want smoothed out (my tummy). I choose not to make the pouch because my fabric was large stripes. I plan to make this dress in a thinner fabric for later in the spring. I can't emphasize enough how quick and satisfying this top is to sew. It is a 3 hour make for the experienced but would make a nice late beginner pattern for newbies as well.
