I love this pattern as I do all of Trudy’s designs, for ease of execution and style. Please, dear Trudy, keep these wonderful tops coming!
I made this out of a double gauze for a summer pull over. I made the "non-hood" version without the back pleat. My only modification was to shorten the sleeve into a 3/4 sleeve (no cuff). I might deepen the "v" neck on my next version, and want to see how the back pleat will work out - but I didn't think my double gauze had enough drape for my first version. I will DEFINATELY make this again. Thank you!
