BWOF 10/2008 #114

Pattern Review

Pattern: BWOF 10/2008 #114

Description: From magazine: "Clever front gathering will really make waves, the raised waistline providing a slimming effect

Sizing: 36-44, I made a 38

Instructions: They were very good for BWOF, just take it step-by-step.

Likes/Dislikes: I liked the look, the sleeves and the front gathering. Another nice feature is the darts in the lower back, helps with the fit of the top.

The dislike – it does run big and if I would have checked Pattern Review first I would have known this.

Changes: I lengthened the top and sleeves. I sewed the center front of the bodice higher, didn’t want the BWOF’s low cleavage look!

Fabric: A knit from Fashionista Fabrics

Conclusion: A cute, trendy top. I will probably make it one more time but I am first going to see how much I wear this one.

This is what I saw outside my window early one morning this week, I grabbed my camera, monopod and went out on the front porch. PJ's and bare feet - it was worth the cold, such a beautiful sunrise.


  1. Nice top. I like the back darts. Nice shot of the sunrise!

  2. I like the fabric you selected for this top. BWOF uses back darts alot and it does improve the fit.

  4. Beautiful top and gorgeous sunrise. I hoep you wear your top lots, I love the fabric.

  5. Nobody does knits and purses like you do!

  6. Thanks for sharing the sunrise - beautiful! Cute top too. A lot of these have been made around blogdom.
