This is a quick pattern for an oversized top that isn't a sack. My problem with oversized is that I look even more oversized than I am already. This top is well designed: there is a nice collar and some great princess lines. So you can control how oversized the top is. I highly recommend this top. I love everything from the faux wrap front to the princess lines and the hem, even the sleeves are great. This is one pattern everyone should I own. (Actually I think that about all Hot Patterns!) I have made this with contrasting panels and I will make one in s sweater knit next.
As is the case with all of Trudy’s patterns, I completely adore it. So simple and stylish, a trademark of Hot Patterns.
