My favorite top!

I absolutely love the Dartmouth top pattern! I have made four so far for summer and will soon be making long sleeve versions for the cooler months. Great fit!

Dartmouth Top

Perfect fit and style. Quick sewing project. Directions were clearly written. A new wardrobe basic for me!

Flattering to wear and easy-to-follow instructions,

The Dartmouth Top was only the 2nd knit garment I've sewn. The pattern was well drafted, all the pattern pieces sewed together easily. I followed the instructions and the neckband attached easily.

Great pattern

I love the fit right out of the envelope! t
The directions are very easy to follow. I don't normally bother with notches, but I'm glad I did on this one. I made the version with no ruching, but Im glad that the ruching is only in the outer piece (less bulk)
I really like that there is a grid on the pattern pieces as well (to make any pattern adjustments easier)
I would have liked there to be layers and a chart for what pages to print for different pieces/versions.
This was my first time trying Cashmerette , but it won't be my last (i.e. the hype is totally deserved)
