Pattern Description: Maggy London Twist Top
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This is the second time I've made this top so didn't need the instructionsWhat did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love the twist but this top is not for the modest. The nature of the twist is such that it results in a very deep V above the twist.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
On the first top I trimmed the wrong size on the part that was to be the upper side seam and as a result I had to make a small armsyce dart to prevent gaping at the armhole. This time I added to the pattern piece that amount that I'd cut off. I have a wide back and usually have to make an adjustment for it so I omitted the back darts. Also I thought the first one I made rode up a little on my bust because I didn't to a FBA. On this pattern doing a FBA was not impossible, just more work than I wanted to do. This time I added 5/8" on the bottom of the seam that is under the bust. So that the side seams would still match, I gradually graded back to the original seam at the side. It made a huge difference. If you look at the front of the two tops you can tell.
Would you make it again? Do you recommend it for others?
I don't think I'll make this again this season but who knows. I would recommend it to others.
Conclusion: This top is too cute and too easy.
