It fit perfectly. I loved it so much, I made one for my cousin. She requested the exact color. Only the buttons were different.
I made three tops and love them. The pattern was very easy and went together fairly quickly. I made the size 12 and did take in some on the sides. I love the longer cuffs. My only problem was when I printed it I unclicked my size so it printed out blank but with some writing on the pieces but no size line! Took me awhile to realize I didn’t print the size. This is a very important step!!!
This is such a great pattern. I made the high-low version. Next time I make it I will lengthen the front a little. I'm only 5 ft 3 and I found it just a bit short in the front. I love the big cowl. The fabric I used was quite a firm knit and the cowl has such a lot of structure. Great shape. I 💘 everything about it!
Although I love ALL the Cashmerette patterns I have, this may be my favorite. There are so many ways to use this pattern. Color-blocked, collar variations, length and hemlines. I pretty much use this as my block for tops. I love the options. I use it to make short sleeved tops as well. Cashmerette patterns always fit me so well, and to get a perfect fit with so many options makes it the perfect pattern for me. Thanks, Cashmerette!
This is my favourite pattern ever. Absolutely brilliant - I basically live in my half-dozen versions (all high collar versions), on rotation. So flattering, so cosy, so quick and easy to sew up. Some are smart enough for work, some are perfect for being at home. Made four in melange, two in rib knit. Had to do my usual adjustment (lower bust apex by 1.5”), but other than that it’s perfect for me. I wish Cashmerette did more patterns with higher necklines as they suit me better, but with this one they’ve cracked it! Thank you :)
