Okay. I don't know about the top part, but I'm a math lover & figured out the lower part... Since you are drawing a quarter circle but cutting it on the fold, you end up with a half circle that needs to equal your full waist. Therefore you get your string length as follows: Measure your underbust/chest. Add about an inch for seam allowance. Divide by 3.14159 and you have your string length/radius. So in my case, 42+1=43 ... 43/3.14159=13.68732.... So I would go with 13.75 for ease of measuring. In all honesty though, for someone of my bustiness this top probably won't work without some serious modifications to the front panels.
I've come back to this pattern several times hoping the corrections would be made. I love the blouse, but the incomplete pattern and incomplete instructions make this impossible for me :(
I just finished looking at the pattern and the back pattern doesn;t have enough detail in order to draw the semi-circle cut outs. I get that the hem might not need to be finished with a knit but it looks like all the edges - neck and sleeves - are also left unfinished. Not sure how well that would wear. Still, it is a cute style and I'd like to try making it.
Hi Meagan, I was unable to get my comment to post on your blog. I just saw this basic pattern and have a question. When you say the string used for drawing the circle should be the circumference of the waist, do you really mean that it is the waist measurement divided by the 3.14, which in your case is 9.55"? Because aren't we supposed to be drawing the pattern for a 1/4 circle?Thanks,Geni
Am I missing something? There is a back pattern piece referred to in the download but not provided. It's a really pretty pattern, but it's not complete.
